ObjectDataSource caching data

I have a search page with a gridview populated with an objectdatasource. When a link in the gridview is clicked it navigates to the update page. Once the update page is open, i have a cancel button which takes the user to the previous page, javascript:history(-1). If data on the update page is saved to the database and the cancel button is pressed and the search page is open. When you click search the new data in the database doesnt appear, but if you select the search page from the menu or hit f5 then do a search the data appears. The object data source is caching the data and i have it turned off:

<asp:ObjectDataSource EnableCaching="false" CacheDuration="0" CacheExpirationPolicy="Sliding" ID="dataSource" runat="server"
                    TypeName="CustomerClass" >

How do i make the data source stop caching data when the page is reached through javascript:history(-1)?

Isnt setting CacheDuration="0" telling it to keep the cache alive for 0 seconds? And EnableCaching="false" so im confused

Also if the user right clicks on the page and then clicks "Back" i get the same results. Why isnt the object datasource hitting the database?
