Sleeve and sushi?



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Some friends and I want to go to a sushi place to Celebrate a birthday. I was wondering if anyone with sleeve has been able to sushi. The rices they use is different so idk if it will go ok. The seafood would have lots of protien and it's always yummy. Anyone have any history or suggestions for this?

Bigtime sushi lover, here.

4 months post-sleeve and I've yet to try it post-op.

Closest thing I've had are some wasabi almonds. Not very close, at all............

I'm just not wanting any rice. No desire.

Now.....the raw salmon & shrimp would be killer.

I won't eat rice cuz it scares me. I have had two people told me the only time they threw up was with rice. I guess it expands in the stomach and makes you fuller.

Yes I know the rice can do that but sushi rice is a bit harder and drier so idk if it would absorb as much liquid.. not sure. But the raw shrimp and salmon would be great. I have been eating a lot of seafood lately and was hoping sushi would work. May have to try some at home before this dinner and see how it goes.

Starting eating sashimi (raw fish, no rice) at 2 months. Personally, I'm avoiding simple carbs like rice -- I suppose requesting brown rice would be better? Even better, sushi made with no rice at all -- cucumber or seaweed wrap instead.

I've eaten sushi with rice and with seaweed wrap at 4 months post op. No problems at all.

I've eaten regular sushi but I only ate two pieces. I prefer sashimi or ask if they can make the sushi without rice and wrapped in cucumber or radish instead. Enjoy!

How far out are you? I LOVE sushi and eat it all the time with no problems whatsoever. Ok, there is one big problem.....I can only eat 2-3 pieces before I'm stuffed :(. Always leaves me wanting more.

I go for sushi regularly. My favorite place makes a great sushi roll wrapped in thinly sliced cucumber and it's delicious. Even better, then make what they call Kani salad and I would guess most sushi restaurants do the same. It's the filling of the spicy crab roll, served on a bed of shredded cucumber and topped with a little tempura flake. I add Sriracha mayo to mine and love it. It's light and refreshing and delish.

At two months I wasn't eating any carbs like rice, but like others said, there's plenty of non-rice sushi options.

4 1/2 years out and still can not tolerate rice--not even a wee bit.

I love sushi, but never eat the rice. --and I eat the ginger with it always.

Ginger calms the gut.

Go and enjoy your night out. If in doubt, don't try the rice for the first time in public.

Stay healthy and let us know how your evening went.

At two-months post op you are medically cleared to have sushi. Keep in mind though what the others have said that the rice makes you feel very full, very quickly. Just the fish portion is a great source of Protein and very low in calories. A lot of rolls they can make with cucumber as the outside instead of rice, or just the rice paper. I periodically have a sushi roll with the fake crab, cream cheese, and rice exterior, however I buy the whole roll and only eat three pieces at a time because otherwise I end up barfing because the rice just blows up my stomach. Prior to surgery I loved regular sushi, but my sleeve is not tolerant of fish anymore- not cooked, not raw, not inside of sushi rolls- nothing, so I stick to fake crab and call it a day.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
