Because of the starchy nature of bread, rice, and pasta, after your surgery, they can form a paste in your throat that is hard to swallow without liquid. In some cases, they can block the stoma, the hole to the pouch that is your new stomach. You don’t have to completely reject these high-starch foods, but it’s best to avoid them in the beginning. When you do eat them, try to have very small portions and make sure that you only eat small bites of each.

I think the question asks 'if it binds to RXR, what happens?'

The retinoid X receptor (RXR1) is an intriguing and essential member of the steroid/thyroid hormone superfamily of nuclear receptors (NRs) that predominately function as transcription factors with roles in development, cell differentiation, metabolism, and cell death

which means its related with development etc

Can anyone explain why the lipase concentration is so high if there is an issue with LPL in hyperchylomicronemia?

garima  due to pancreatitis +

It can't be the Facial nerve, physical examination was normal. Someone would probably notice the face symptoms.

I went with Glossopharyngeal, but that wasn't it.

garima  I thought the same for olfactory, he would have realize he can't smell... :O +1

Answer is Astrocyte. Patient has glioblastoma multiforme. Although meningiomas may occur at convexities, meningiomas are benign and often asymptomatic. They may cause h/a seizures, but would be unlikely to cause death w/in 6m of onset of h/a. The size of tumor and course of illness is consistent with the course of GBM

masonkingcobra  Above is obviously incorrect because the answer is Meningeal lol. Here is a link to a good picture: http://neuropathology-web.org/chapter7/chapter7fMiscellaneous.html +5  
kernicterusthefrog  Obviously thomas is disagreeing with the presentation of the question, and I agreed with him! This absolutely sounds like GBM, with rapid onset leading to death, and the symptoms. The question stem leads you to GBM, and the gross image to meningioma (I guess). +2  
kernicterusthefrog  Furthermore, where are the meninges on the gross image form which this (meningioma) grew?! It should at least show the tissue from whence it came! +1  
nala_ula  Had the same problem, got confused since it appeared that the growth was malignant :( +  
sugaplum  FA 2019 pg 514, also agree with everyone. weird presentation. Glios are malignant death within 1 year, meningioma are often asymptomatic or have focal signs. just a gross pathology question at this point +  
garima  ı think she died bc of pressure or something guys, its obviously round shaped benign lesion, its also extra axial not like GBM. she had this maybe years before death +
