Mahi mahi post op?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys im a little more than three weeks post-op VSG and my 2-4 week post-op diet plan soft foods, including different types of fish (salmon trout, halibut, flounder etc.). But they never specified whether mahi mahi was ok to have so im just curious if anybody has advice as to whether it's flaky enough or too tough to to have at this point. And if so fill me in on some delicious recipes never knew fish tasted so good until now! So mahi mahi is new to me

Mahi Mahi is a pretty firm fish. You may be able to tolerate a small amount depending on how cooked. Poaching will keep it softer than grilling, and you could add a small amount of a sauce to help soften it up. Just go slow with very small bites to see if you tolerate it.

I love mahi mahi, it is pretty much the only fish I eat.

However, I cannot remember when I started eating it again post op. I believe it was when I transitioned back into the normal diet phase.

at around 1 month post op i was eating tons of fish. Sockey Salmon, King Salmon, Halibut, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, shrimp, crab legs and smoked fish. No issues at all. I just took small bites and chewed well.

      Still purging all of the larger clothing. This morning, a shirt that I ADORED wearing ended up on top. Hard to let it go, but it was also hard to let go of those habits that also no longer serve my highest good. Onward and upward!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!
