Ivey went to the vet a month ago for a pouch infection and we did Baytril twice a day for 2 weeks and all seemed well.

A couple of nights ago the flappy skin from the weight she had loss with the pouch infection looked swollen. She actually looked like she had gotten breast augmentation on one side. And her pouch infection looked like it was back.

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r63/newby_04/Ivey%20and%20her%20illness/IveyJack014.jpg

When I took Ivey out this morning to take her to the vet I noticed that she had a lump forming on the other side in the exact same spot as the other one.

The vet felt the larger lump and told me that there was actually 2 lumps together. One hard and one soft. After consulting with Dr. Tristan they "think" that it may be Lymphoma. She is having a test run to find out for sure but the results won't be back for almost a week.

As far as her pouch infection goes she will be put on Baytril again with a medicated wash.

When the vet exasperated the lump she got 1ml of fluid out of it that she is having tested. On the plus side the fluid doesn't look like what normally comes out if it is Lymphoma. So both the vet and I are taking that as a good sign. And when Ivey woke up she never even noticed the spot that was exasperated, so the chance of her sm'ing the lump is slim. Her lumps are not proportionate now that a bunch of fluid is gone from the one.

I'll find out more tomorrow after my vet checks the fluid. There was plenty for her to send off AND for her to conduct her own tests and cultures as well.

Please pray that the tests that get sent off come back negative for Lymphoma.

Ivey is such a sweet little girl. She doesn't do any crabbing or nipping or biting through all that she has been through recently.

It was so cute when we got home today. Kudzu heard me walk in the house and popped his head up out of the pouch looking for me to return his girl. When I gave Ivey back to him, he licked her face for a second and they both climbed back in the pouch to finish their cuddle and sleeping. All was the way its suppose to be. So sweet!

awww, bless her little heart.

I will be keeping you and Ivey in my thoughts and prayers that this turns out to be nothing serious. Again, I'm so sorry she is going through this.

I've been following this on LGG, but I just wanted to pop in here and say I'm thinking about little Ivey and hoping for the best possible outcome. My prayers are with the both of you!

Last Thursday Ivey went to the doctor for a reoccurring pouch infection and mysterious lumps on her chest. The vet exasperated the larger lump and got 1ml of fluid out of it and had it sent off for testing. We are still waiting on the test to come back to figure out what our next step is. Given the fact that she hasnt lost any more weight, but hasnt gained any either she is doing well and seems to not be bothered at all by these lumps. Her appetite is good, her ears are perky and her eyes are still bright and she is still pretty active considering she is not a spring chicken any more.

Kudzu nor Ivey has drawn any attention to the lumps and seem to pay them no mind, which is a good thing since I really do not want to seperate the 2 if at all possible.

Ivey will be going back to the vet again in the morning to see about having them drained again and hopefully when I pick her back up in the afternoon my vet would have heard something from the sample that was sent off for testing.

Here is Ivey and her lumps. Doesnt she have the sweetest face in the world?

I'm posting a comment so I can find this thread again just in case I miss your update. I saw your original post about Ivey. I am very interested in these "lumps". I hope you get good news from the lab/vet.

Took her back in this morning cause I'm afraid if they burst I may be looking at other problems. So I was hoping that they could drain them again. But my vet is uneasy about putting her under to drain them again till they get the results back. My vet is hoping that they get the results back either today or tomorrow and if they dont come in tomorrow then she is going to call them. She doesnt feel that Ivey is in any danger at the moment and is very pleased with her appetite, curiousness and being so alert.

On the plus side the sample that my vet still has hasn't changed any. It hasn't clotted, discolored or grew any funkiness. We're still just playing the waiting game.

Now a side affect that I have is that I'm obsessing over my fluffy gliders for lumps, even though Ivey was not overly fluffy, now I'm just tripping over the small stuff and I know thats not good.

Sherri my prayers are with you and Ivey. It is odd that the two lumps grew so close together and at about the same size. When they were drained how long did it take before they grew back?

Do gliders have lymph nodes placed similar to where we do? I agree, that is odd they should be symmetrically placed on the body. Sherri I hope Ivey is ok, your vet sounds just wonderful and it is normal to worry! I would be a basketcase in your shoes, believe me!

Originally she just had one large lump and a smaler one. She drained and took samples of the larger one on Thursday and by the Saturday I noticed it was getting bigger again and the smaller one was also getting larger.

My vet and I are both stumped as to what is causing the lump AND the fact they are in the same spot just opposite sides.

Test results soon....hopefully!

Sherri she really does have a very sweet little face and she looks like she was being such a good girl while you took those picture...I am sending prayers your way that Ives gets good news, something simple that can easily be taken care of...question...what symptoms of a pouch infection was she having? Looking at the pics, I can't see any redness or irritation or discharge (although the discharge would be hard to see anyway). Are those pics of her after the infection has calmed down alot? Sorry its off topic, I am just curious...give her a kiss on the head for me and stay positive!

It could be that an infection has set in under the skin creating the lumps. It would be symmetrical as the skin "fits" both sides the same.

Jess, with her pouch infection she just had a brownish yellow discharge was the only thing thing noticeable other than the fact that she had lost some weight and became dehydrated.

The first time I took her in to the vet for the pouch incident, my vet had said that the pouch itself looked really good. It had the discharge and was dirty inside it but other than that it wasn't red, swollen or irritated, plus it didn't smell.

Got the results back and they are inconclusive. She goes for surgery on Monday to remove the lumps and send those off for a histopath. I never read so many big words and my vet had never had a report come back with as much going on in it as Iveys. Here is the report. If anyone can make any sense of it I would really appreciate it. All I understood from my vet is that there are cells that indicate the possiblity of cancer.

If it is cancer there is no treatment for gliders. They can't go through treatment like other animals can.

I'm hoping its not cancer. But if it is she will live out her days as painless as possible and if she gets to the point of being in bad health and pain she will cross the rainbow bridge knowing that she was very loved.

But we're not going to think negatively. We are staying positive that it ISN'T cancer.
