Will my python ever recover?

Does anyone know what can cause an 11 year old python to lose weight when never refusing a meal? She hasn't lost much weight but, she certainly hasn't gained any weight when the rodent size was increased months ago. Plus, she is pretty inactive, seems weak and feels squishy. As if she lost some of her muscle mass.

I already had her to the vet multiple times and her fecal and bloodwork came back normal. Is 11 years actually old for a python? I thought they can go into their twenties. I don't know, maybe she is starting to die from just old age.

A disease perhaps. It's possible she could have cancer or something else affecting her health. Parasites could do it in the feeders. I'd get a fecal done
