Unhappy Please help- hamster with lump

Hi, I am so sorry to take over this thread. Iím new here and i have no idea how to start a new thread but i really, really need help with my hamster too. Her name is Hettie and she is only 6 months old and I have no idea what is wrong with her. Last week I found her lying underneath her hamster wheel, she was stuck. When we freed her, her head was tilted to one side and she couldnít move her back legs. over the last few days this has returned to normal however a huge, I mean absolutely gigantic, lump has started to form in her tummy. The lump is bigger than she is! She is definitely not pregnant! Her ears are back all the time and we can feel her spine through her fur! I am so so worried about her!
Ps I am so sorry about changing the thread subject ❣️

Hi there - I have moved your post to its own thread. To make a thread you fo to a board and top left about the board you will see in brown writing new thread click that and then make your post.
I think you need to see a vet urgently with your hamster. There must be some sort of internal damage caused by the wheel incident and this has cause fluid or blood to gather in the abdomen. Bloating in the abdomen is never good news so get her seem urgently. She does sound very unwell so you may have to prepare for the worst.
