Maybe: Depends what the pancreatitis is due to. If it is from gallstone or medication and you have had them delt with or stopped the medicine then it shouldn't be an issue. If it was from alcohol you could drink (no one can physically stop you) but you will be putting yourself at risk for future attacks and the nest time it might not be a mild attack.
