Getting a little worried

A little background. I am a 36 yr. old male who is obese with NO family history of cancer of any type. I am not a smoker or a drinker, however I am getting worried. I started having right side pains (kinda like cramps) about a month ago and have finally been diagnosed with a low functioning gallbladder (ejection fraction was 33%). However I am negative for gallstones (had an abdominal ultrasound and everything came back clean except for the pancreas which they could see clearly). For the past week though I have started having cramps on my left side, right under the rib cage, as well (these are becoming more constant and more painful (although not horribly painful, just annoying painful). I have no other symptoms (although I have lost about 3-4 pounds this week without really trying...keeping an eye on that). Thanks to google (left side pain and I am scared to death that I could possibly have Pancreatic Cancer. I guess I'm asking how worried should I really be? I go and see the general surgeon about gallbladder removal on Tuesday and I plan on mentioning it to him.

Hi yes, sorry to hear about your illness.
You should definitely mention it to your doc. Get an abdominal CT scan as well. and get a second opinion (diff doc)
Good luck
