Pancreatitis : Yes, those are some of the symptoms. You need to consult with a pancreas expert and probably get imaging to further assess the severity.

ERCP: Ercp allows to take sample via brushing and biopsies. It is pretty accurate, however this should be combined with other imaging techniques, such as ct scan or MRI . As far as your persistent pain, i recommend you to report it to your doctor to rule out recurrence or other diagnosis.
