Some detail would be helpful. How did the injury happen? What "level" are you referring to? Is this a lipase or amylase level? What imaging studies have been done? When did the injury occur? The possibilities range from traumatic pancreatitis to transection of the gland with ductal injury and pancreatic ascites.
