Hi - I’m in my 6th week post op for gastric sleeve and I was wondering if anyone had sashimi/raw fish this early? If not how long did you wait post surgery to try it? Did you have any problems/sensitivity with it? Meeting a friend for lunch and scoping out the menu.


I had rare seared tuna without issue over the weekend.

My nutrition team did not call it out as Protein to avoid at this time.

I can't remember when I first had it (I'm several years out), but since you were able to handle rare seared tuna the other day, you can probably handle sashimi, too

It's generally safe to eat raw fish, such as sashimi, 5.5 weeks after gastric sleeve surgery, as long as you are tolerating regular foods well and do not have any complications or sensitivities. However, it's always important to check with your surgeon or dietitian before consuming raw fish, as they may have specific recommendations for you.

It's also important to note that while you may have been able to tolerate rare seared tuna over the weekend, it's important to listen to your body and stop eating if you experience any discomfort or difficulty swallowing.

Also, it's important to keep in mind that it's recommended to eat small and frequent meals after bariatric surgery and avoid overeating, and raw fish like sashimi, tend to be low in calories, so it's important to not overdo it, also consume it with other nutrient-dense foods such as vegetables.

Finally, it's also important to make sure that the fish you're consuming is properly handled, stored and cooked to avoid any foodborne illness.

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
