Two thoughts and a suggestion.

1. If the removed adrenal gland was not biopsied you may be dealing with metastasis.

2. Juvenile lymphoma is also a possibility.

Keep in mind that cancers may not show up on testing until late stage.

Barring those possibilities, a suggestion: Try giving lupron. I've never had a ferret go symptom free following adrenal surgery, additional treatment (ie; lupron) was always needed. Based on my experiences, the symptoms you describe can be attributed to adrenal issues. Lupron may solve the problem.
