Can prior episodes of pancreatitis in my cat lead to abnormal weight gain?

My cat had pancreatitis when he was a year and a half old. It was pretty bad and he nearly died. He had it for almost a month but for 2 weeks, didn't eat or drink. About a year ago, he had it again but it didn't get as bad and he was fine in a few days. Since the pancreas is responsible for aiding in digestion... Can his prior pancreas problems be the result of his rabid weight gain? He is 5 years old and almost 10 pounds over weight. He only eats a cup of food a day. He gained a few pounds in the last month like it was nothing!
