ML, that's a bit confusing as the pancreas is under the left lobe of the liver. It could have been referred pain. However, I agree that there is probably another cause for the pain.
Kriland, rarely is there actual liver pain. It can be caused by distension of the liver's surface, but this is rare. To quote Dr. Melissa Palmer, "Other causes of abdominal pain include those related to the stomach, such as peptic ulcer disease and gastritis...and are readily treatable when discovered." Try putting him on a mostly liquid diet with some bland foods like mashed potatoes, baked sweet potato, vegetable soup (homemade or low sodium canned), and well-cooked carrots. And don't forget water.
This is something that should be brought to a doctor's attention, but I know your husband is refusing treatment.
