I love eating sushi and a medium-rare steak. These foods are not cooked well and I wonder if it is okay for us to eat such food after surgery, meaning after the wound has healed.

Does the medical community ever say it’s okay to eat meat that isn’t thoroughly cooked?  I can’t imagine so, not even if they eat sushi and order their steak that way.  With raw food, particularly sushi, you run the risk of getting parasites and experiencing GI problems which would feel worse after surgery.  So, I never bothered asking a doctor and just assumed they’d say no.  Having said that, I have a cousin who has had surgery who eats sashimi fairly often.  She had surgery seven months ago.  I order my steaks cooked medium-well and haven’t had any problems, but I can’t eat much before I feel full.

There are some things we have to let go so we can have better health. You can still eat sushi with cooked fish or egg inside. As for steak, medium-well would be good enough I guess.

Sashimi is also one of my weaknesses. Maybe I will just go for steamed fish.

I also agree with you, Marilee. It is just hard to let go of something that we love, especially with food.

I think there’s some risk in eating raw meat and fish no matter what the situation.  With sushi in particular, there are a lot of parasites and bacteria you can get from eating it, which can lead to gastrointestinal issues.

I know they do have some sushi that contains cooked or at least partially cooked fish.  That might be a better option to eat.
