Subject: [ferrethealth] cysts next to intestines

hi all
im looking for advice and information.
Lucy was taken into the vets in the week as her belly was swollen up
like a balloon, when the vets looked at her she said she could feel
some lumps and wanted to open her up the next, she didnt want to do
xrays as it would only tell what she already new
so we took lucy in in the morning for her op. when they opened her up
they found three large cysts full of pink milky liquid next to her
intestines, which they drained.
her spleen looked a bit enlarged and her liver is patchy and pale.
samples of the fluid and the cyst have been sent of and a blood test
to check her liver, kidneys and red/white blood cells
the blood work has come back as normal apart from showing lucy is a
bit anemic
but we are still waiting for the other test to come back, lucy is
starting to swell up again and im worried silly
has any come across or heard about this before as my vet has nether
seen anything like this before

thanks leah
