Julie, is there any chance of getting a new pancreas? It would seem like
that someone who already has a kidney transplant, that you need all the
help you can get to protect that kidney, and the best protection would
be a new pancreas. 

Also, I've heard that the anti-rejection drugs have improved over the
years, so maybe there would be a better chance of keeping a new pancreas

Good luck!
