Hello, I'm wondering if you can help me I am

Patient : Hello, I'm wondering if you can help me. I am a concerned parent, and I would like to know your opinion for my son. My son is 5 years old and he suffers from short bowel syndrome (he was born with it) and he has a central line that goes through he archery from his heart, (but he has been giving a life expectancy untill he is 5) and out by his chest my son is allergic to the line itself, but the doctors at the Southampton general hospital has tried him on 3 other different types of lines, and they have found a line that has kept his allergy down for now but he has another expectancy for 1 year. The main contents in the line he is allergic to is coxidin and I'm wondering is there anything or anyone who could help my son as I'm trying to do all I can to help him?
