Pancreas Cancer

If a person has had surgery for cancer (gallbladder) in the past and all of the current blood test come back ok, does this mean that the cancer is in remission or can the cancer still be active and not show up in the blood work? The reason I am asking is that my husband is having lots of back pain and is loosing the mobility in his left foot, he is scheduled for a mri next week, but chemo dr says it cannot be caused by the cancer as his blood work is ok, does this make sense to you. In other words the chemo dr says if the blood test are ok then not to worry about the pain, says it is probably just a disk or pinched nerve. He did have a ct scan which also came back ok.

Any help you can give me would be great.

Thanks for you replys.
