View Full Version : An update on Pumpkin: sad news (again)

03-12-2014, 10:06 PM
After the blow of Coltsfoot passing away yesterday, today Pumpkin had her exploratory surgery to see what the lump that was found on the scan was - and it in inoperable cancer.

The tumour itself is still relatively small BUT it is growing in what my vet described as the worst place - just as the caecum comes into the duodenum (I think ive got that right - he also said it had a junction with something else at that point but I had blanked out by then).

It is impossible to operate on and will just grow now and cause a blockage. How quickly they do not known. Its a focused tumour so the rest of her is fine - no lymph nodes affected, no other gut tissue affected - just this **** tumour that cannot be operated on without destroying the gut at its most difficult part.

We had so been hoping it was just a small cyst of some kind or at worst a lump in a lymph node that could just be taken out.

It was another huge bill (over 350 - we paid the same only yesterday for Coltsfoot's sad operation and a scan on Pumpkin ) and another very sad set back. She is back home now but they suggest pts as soon as it starts to affect her and she gets another of the stassis like events.

I feel like life is just throwing everything at me at the moment - we already have a lot of other things going on which are very difficult in our lives at present -

and I feel so very sad for Pumpkin and her husbun Peapod. She is only 5.
