Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* The residue of oils in urine indicate possible presence of ketones due to various reasons, not necessarily indicate pancreatitis.
* There are various reasons as low carbohydrate intake, excess protein intake, starvation, over exhaustion, uncontrolled diabetes or others.

I recommend a thorough case evaluation with analysis of supportive documents of reports.
Regards.

I have pain in my abdomen area. Feels swollen and hurts when I push on it. I have been dealing with this problem since Oct. I have had a CT scan done negative. Also had a Urine test and blood work to check liver and kidney function. Then was put on CIPRO and then another antibiotic for possible Uninary tract issues. I had no success with either and am still having pain. I am wondering if you have any ideas? I ask doctor if it could be a hernia and he stated no that he would see it on the CT scan. I am concerned that it could possibly be Pacreatitus. Would that show up on an abdominal scan? Also my Colon was checked and said to be good.

So its now Wednesday night, i'm having pains in my lower left abdominal area, and am considering going to the hospital. Monday night I started feeling like I had a stomach ache or something, couldn't sleep that night because of it, got maybe an hour or so of sleep. The next day I took a laxative at about 2PM thinking it was probably constepation. After a while the laxative started doing its work and I started feeling better. Besides being tired, that night I fell asleep around 11PM, woke up at around 1:30AM to use the bathroom a few more times, but the pain was back, and it kept me up the rest of the night. Which brings us to today, where the pain has only made it where I can't be comfortable at any point, but it seems to be getting worse now.
