Liver transplant for patient with liver cirrhosis

How many weeks to prepare and to wait for the lab results  of crossmatching to do liver transplant? What treatments and best foods to be  given to the patient with distended abdomen with paralytic ileus while waiting for liver transplant?

crossmatching does not take that long and is not absolutely necessary to know pre-liver transplantation.  lactulose can lead to an ileus so this may need to be discontinued in the short term.  NPO is necessary for an ileus to avoid aspiration.
