In brief: Pancreatic Pain
Most importantly is a proper diagnosis as to why you are having "acute pancreatic pain".
Pancreatic pain is abnormal and usually a sign of pancreatitis. However, other organ pain can mimic pancreatic pain and it is important to rule out aneurism and ulcer as well as other conditions. Pancreatic pain is known as visceral pain and usually treated with one or several classes of medication.

In brief: Probably Not
Reducing the pancreatic secretions with TPN would probably be most beneficial in the long term. Severe pain might be best addressed with ultra low dose ketamine.
More moderate pain would probably respond to a variety of opiates.
