Subject: [ferrethealth] How many insulinoma surgeries should one have ?

My 5 yr old boy Bob has had 2 insulinoma surgeries in the past 3 yrs. I am sure the tumor has grown back by the way he acts. He has been on Pred the whole time too. He has lost a lot of muscle mass and now he is loosing his hair too. He might have an adrenal issue too. Tomarrow we are going to a new vet that the prior vet reffered me to. The old vet told me that Bob's tumor could be debulked and that would help him. She said the bigger it gets the worse he will feel and if some is cut out it will turn back time a little. Is this true? My husband thinks it is cruel to keep having surgeries on him. Bob is my baby and I would do anything for him. Any thoughts on this are appreciated.
