Post Pancreatitis Mildly Elevated Lipase

I had acute pancreatitis caused by gall stones (gall bladder removed) over 3 months ago - spent 18 days in the hospital and two weeks at home on IV (TPN) 24/7.  Since that time I have had continued mildly elevated lipase readings in my blood work and some fairly consistent mild abdominal discomfort.  I also can't seem to get my energy back and am quite tired much of the time.  Any thoughts on what could be the problem?  Is having continued elevated levels of lipase in blood common after acute pancreatitis?
