I have a 15 year old total care patient on

I have a 15 year old total care patient on Peptamen via J-tube. She is dependent upon daily liquid glycerin suppositories to produce a bowel movement. For the past few days I’ve noticed her stools have dark-colored, sand-like particles in it that adhere to her skin when I wipe her with baby wipes. I am flummoxed as to what this could be. They are grainy like sand and hold their form.

Hello, I am an eczema patient and i have this since i was 2. I am currently 15 years old. My height is 5.5ft and weight is 65 kilograms. I would like to know if there is any way that my eczema would go away or a way to reduce it a lot currently. If my eczema would go, by what age would it? My doctors here told me it would go by the age of 14 - 15 but I don t see any signs of this disappearing.

Hi, my 15 year old son was diagnosed with a meduloblastoma brain tumor the day after Easter. His surgery was very successful with total resection. And his spinal tap was clear . He has endured 6weeks of radiation 5 days a week with chemo every tuesday in addition to radiation. We are currently on the 4th week of our 5 week break before checking in the hospital to receive 4 days of inpatient chemo therapy . He still has no appetite and his hair is just now growing back. He is 6ft. talll and only weighs 107 lbs. Should I inquire about a feeding tube? And will the Vin Chritstine make his hair fall out all over ? I should mention that he will be doing the in patient chemo for 6months. And what the survival rate for this type of tiumor?
