#599205 - 07/29/08 08:47 PM Giant Lump
Monster
Unregistered


Hi all - well, I just got my kids out for playtime & Fawkes has a giant lump on his neck that he didn't have this weekend.

I have been driving the past 2 days, so they have not had playtime, but I didn't notice it until today.

I looked as best as I could & there is no indication of a bite - no bleeding, no holes.

I'm uploading pics right now.

I have an e-vet, but they don't know about gliders, so I'm thinking it would be best to take him in first thing in the morning since he is eating, drinking, and acting normal.

Opinions please - I have no idea what this is...

***Pics coming in a few minutes...

Is he acting normal otherwise? If he isn't lethargic and is eating/playing ok, I agree that I'd watch it and take him in first thing tomorrow.

I wish I had any ideas to tell you, but all I have is hugs and prayers that all will be ok with him. hug2

He's out eating right now. He is a little more active than usual, but they all are because I cleaned the repts today & they're checking out the "clean smell"

I'm going to go check him again for bite marks. I just can't think what would make a lump that big so fast...

Ok, I just went and looked again (he was running in his wheel) - no bites marks that I could see, but he was being really wiggly so I suppose I could have missed something.

The lump is hard - it feels like someone put a bouncy ball under his skin (like the kind you get from the machine at the supermarket).

Arg.......

The vet opens at 7:30 - so I'm going to set an alarm.

In the meantime, I went on VIN & got their list of veterinary oncology consultants to take with me just in case.

Please cross your fingers that this is nothing serious...

#599675 - 07/30/08 09:31 AM Fawkes has Lymphoma... [Re: ]

I just got back from the vet - Fawkes does indeed have lymphoma.

She said removing the tumor wouldn't help because it's probably already spread elsewhere in his body.

The only thing she could give me for him is some Chinese herbal meds. They're by New Vita - one is called Immuny II and the other is Immune Up. She has never tried them on a glider, but has had success with dogs and cats.

Gina, I'm sorry to hear this news. I have heard of that particular herbal treatment and have seen remarkable results in some animals that were treated with it. I pray that this will work for Fawkes. Sending you tons of hugs and prayers.

oh Gina, I'm soooooo very sorry! Is there anything I can do to help?

How do they know if it has spread or not? I would not rule out surgery just yet. Did they do a blood test to verify it was lymphoma?

They stuck a small syringe in it & pulled out some cells. She showed me under the microscope the cells actually splitting.

They did not draw blood, just did the stick...

Fawkes is only 3 1/2 years old.

She said there is likely a genetic component, so I will need to be watching 4 of my other boys who are sons, brother, and nephew to Fawkes.

She said without treatment he probably only has about 6 weeks.

I'm going to email Donna, I don't have her number...

I have to get to the store now & get something yummy to mix his meds in...

Oh no, Gina! I was praying it was something else (this was what I thought Timmy had with his lump.) My heart is breaking for you. What treatment can they give him? All my prayers are with you both. God bless.
