Subject: Lymphadenopathy/lethargy/x-rays. Anyone care to comment?

Hi all,

I posted about the radiographs on my ferret once before and
only got one reply....Thought I would try again now that I
have all the information up on one site. His story is so
strange that there simply is no way to tell it all in just a
paragraph or two, so I created some webpages specifically for
him. Included are all blood test results from 10/98-9/01,
histopathology reports, radiology reports, and the most
current set of radiographs taken 9/1/01.

He is only 3.5 years old, and looks and acts like a 7 or 8
year old. All lymph nodes are swollen now and seem to be
increasing in size. There is also a huge mass in the chest
that looks exactly like what we were seeing in him back in

I don't know what to do for him other than exploratory. It
doesn't help that the radiologist is now again saying that all
findings are consistent with lymphoma. I know, a radiologist
cannot diagnose this, but aspirates and biopsies haven't
worked either, and I'm truly afraid of putting him through an
exploratory, although I know that is probably the only option
I have left at this point.

Anyway, if anyone wants to review his medical information and
give me some input, I would really appreciate it!!! His web
pages can be found at:
