Sorry your little one has had such a hard time.
I am a little confused by some of your descriptions of what's been happening for example, what do you mean his intestines are "stuck to one side??" If there wasn't anything pushing them to the side - how could they be stuck to one side??
Why was he put on both prednisone and Azathioprine?? What was suspected? Has he been tested for bone marrow suppression from the Azathioprine?
I wonder whether you live outside of North America because some of the protocols you are describing are let's say, unusual - or it sounds like you are throwing everything at him in the hopes that something will work.
Have the lymph nodes been biopsied? Has an exploratory been suggested?
Was the source of the nasal ulcers ever established? What was the big lump on his side? Why do you think he has maldigestion? What were the results of his blood work?
You may dealing with a number of different things going on and not one illness that fits all the symptoms. Some of the medications he's been on may be creating some of the symptoms as well (i.e., side effects).
Have you had him to a ferret specialist for an evaluation?
