So our cat has a diagnosis, and things are now even more confusing.3:41 Jul 27th, 2014 | 10 notes
The biopsy results for our cat came back in. (Previous posts about the situation: Here and here.) My housemate had to call the vet on Friday evening because we hadn’t heard anything from them in four days. It turned out they’d had three different doctors go over the lymph node biopsy trying to figure it out, and her official diagnosis is now atypical lymphoid proliferation with mild pyogranulomatous lymphadenitis. According to the technician at the vet clinic, that’s basically shorthand for “we’re not sure exactly what we’re looking at here.”
The good news is that it may not be cancer after all. It may be precancerous, though, and we’re still stuck with a $950 vet bill for all the tests. In any case, the only way we’re going to figure out what’s going on now— whether it’s precancerous, caused by an infection or what— is to keep our appointment with the specialist, which is on Tuesday, because the regular vets admitted they can’t figure out what’s going on with her at this point. Meanwhile, anything you could donate to help us pay the vet bill, even just a few dollars, would be really, massively appreciated. The GoFundMe link is here and our PayPal address is inasha AT karitas DOT net.
And whether it’s precancerous or not, we still don’t know what the cost of treatment is going to be. Has anyone else had a cat with this condition?
