Too Early to Worry: Wt. Loss, back pain, fevers, nausea, epigastric cramping, diarrhea despite completely negative blood, radiologic and ultrasound tests must still be concerning and alarming. Further workup and consultation with your care team is no doubt in progress, so answers should be coming in shortly. Worry about pancreatic ca may be misplaced and a bit premature!

More info?: The first thing one thinks of is gallbladder but... When do you get pain? What type? How long does it last? Anything make it better? Anything make it worse? Does food affect the pain? Have you had any surgery ? How long has it been there? Have you tried any medications? Did they work? Pancreatic ca (thankfully) is very rare. And if it were causing symptoms i would expect 2 see a mass on ct.
