In brief: See ur hepatologist

Diet for patients with liver disease in part depends on the cause of liver disease.
In general, avoid things that can further aggravate liver injury, such as alcohol. Reduce fatty food intake, go easy on salt and watch protein intake. Eat smaller amounts more frequently. The decision regarding transplant depends on the cause of liver disease and symptoms. You should see a liver doctor.

In brief: Doubt transplant

It is doubtful a child's b cirrhotic would get a liver. Most pt's are much sicker, usually child's c, to get listed.
However, most are scored using a meld not pugh now. Diet and nutrition are major factors in long term health for cirrhotic patients. If cirrhosis is from alcohol, then abstinence is mandatory. Several studies have suggested that increased branched chaing Amino Acids are helpful.
