hi there I was wondering if anyone out there has a child that had a liver transplant to resolve citrullinemia like me that is having trouble getting use to not having to be on a low protein diet. I was transplanted on june the 7th of this year so I am almost 5 month post transplant. I tend to eat like I still have citrullinemia. my parents have to give me a mango protein drink to make sure I get 50 grams of protein like the liver dr wants me to get through out the day cause I don't get that by just food since my appetite is poor and nothing tastes good except eggs. any ideas or thoughts? I would greatly apriciate it. thanks. marta
