It depends on what your nutritionist and surgeon recommended for you. If you are allowed soft foods a week out, it'd be fine to try.

They are guidelines, yes, but it's still safer to stick to them in the early months.

I'm looking forward to tuna, too. But was told to wait until week 3.

I was on soft foods on the 8th day, I tolerated tuna/salmon in very small bites. But follow your surgeon's/dietitian's plan.

tuna 8 days post-op sounds very early tbh, but check with your team. I waited about 2.5 weeks before I tried a salmon burger. it went down fine, but I had to go very slowly or else I had some chest pain. I was able to eat the whole patty over the course of 20-30 min but it was definitely heavy in my stomach. I tried canned tuna about 3 weeks in. again, it was tolerable.

this early out I personally would stay away from tuna. you will probably not be able to eat much or even any of it anyway. the most solid food I was eating 8 days out was pudding, greek yogurt, or 4-5 spoons of cream of wheat....hadn't even moved on to cheese at that point. I know everyone is different, but it takes like 1-2 months for those staples to heal so advancing your diet too quickly can be dangerous. you will get through this! the first 2 weeks are the hardest. stay strong!
