I had the dx of nonhodgkins lymphona in 1981. had a course of chem, a course of radiation and a final course or chemo. Does this have any effect on the pancreas? I have now developed diabetes w/o any family hx or current symptoms. Endocrinologist states my pancreas is slowing down. My radiation as from my naval down to just above my knees in the front and the back. Chemo bleomyacin, high doses of prednisone, adriomyacin, vencrystin and cytoxin.
