Hi Diabetic Rage
I sympathize with your plight, as diabetes can be a difficult disease to deal with. Sometimes one may need to see a psychologist to help deal with the various issues, as you are certainly not alone in feeling this way.
Regarding pancreas transplants, the only form done in South Africa is that of a complete pancreas transplant, which is done simultaneously with a kidney transplant for patients with kidney failure.
The other way of doing a transplant is by injecting pancreatic cells in the veins of the liver, and this technique is not done in SA, as it is very costly, not always successful, and requires immunosuppressive drugs, which come with their own side-effects.
