Female Butterfly Koi Egg Bound

I have a 8 year hold female Butterfly Koi. We believe she may be egg bound. She has stopped eating for about a week now. I check her pond several times a day and there is this milky gel like substance floating around in the water. It appears to be coming from her. I clean it out and when she moves around more appears. She has been staying on the bottom not really moving much. She is by herself. What can I do to help her? - Reda

The best thing you can do is have a vet come out and see if they can perform an operation to remove the tumor. I don't ever recall hearing about a Koi that recovered from being egg bound all by itself.
