Subject: Re: Adrenal cancer

-I have had two ferrets this summer face the adrenal surgery and they
came through with flying colors. It is amazing how fast they snap back
from this. Since my first ferret had a "borderline adrenal panel" and
my second,Lucy, had a negative panel but indeed had adrenal carcinoma
of the left gland; I would go with my instincts and go for the
surgery. Make sure the vet is experienced not only in left adrenal
removal; but right as well; as it is tricker.

My first ferret, Toby, had a benign tumor, so not all the tumors are
cancerous. Hang in there, and let us know how we can help.
