In brief: Post operative pain

Any persistent post operative pain should be brought to your surgeon's attention.
They should consider additional imaging to determine if there is any additional problem.

In brief: Depends

Unless you have a history of prior pancreatitis, it would not likely occur now (4 weeks after surgery).
You may have gastritis from narcotic pain medication, constipation, etc, also, the sudden onset of kidney stones would be unlikely as well, unless you have a history of them. Call and see your surgeon for an evaluation.
