Unhappy My girl Maggie

Our golden, Maggie saw the vet yesterday and she has several enlarged lymph nodes. The vet did a FNA on two of the lymph nodes to send to a pathologist for examination. The vet, though non-committal looked at the slides and said that they looked suspicious. Maggie has been losing weight and not eating for the past two weeks. The first vet we took her to, ran all of the necessary blood tests but could not make a diagnosis. That is when we decided to get a second opinion. She will be undergoing an ultrasound this afternoon and we expect the results from the pathologist tomorrow. We are almost 100% sure that she has lymphoma. She is six years old and the love of our lives. I have started doing research on lymphoma and came across this forum as a source of both information and comfort. I am also researching chemo options, but I do not know how to proceed at this point. When I have an update, I will post. BTW, her WBC and platelet counts are both below normal as well as her absolute lymphocyte count

I'm so sorry to hear you think she has lymphoma, I do hope it is something else.
Let us know what the results are.
If it does turn out to be lymphoma, I would get a consult with an oncology vet if they have one in your area.
here http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...-lymphoma.html (Please Pray For Andy - Lymphoma) is a good thread about lymphoma

So sorry that you think this is what she has we will keep our fingers crossed for you.

You'll find lots of advice and useful info on here from people who have gone through this with their dogs. As suggested, have a look at the link the other user sent as Andy is an inspiration to anyone experiencing lymphoma with their golden!

Unhappy Worst fears confirmed

Our worst fears have been confirmed. Maggie has lymphoma with some nodes in her stomach. We now have to wait for the determination of B or T cell.

I'm so sorry to read that sweet Maggie has Lymphoma at such a young age. Praying that medical intervention can give her more time that is free of pain.
