Sense of smell/taste off since general anesthesia
I had surgery with general anesthesia a week ago and have noticed that my sense of taste and smell are both off. I have a weird sensation when I breathe-kind of metallic and cool feeling. Everything tastes a little different too. I drink a lot of diet cokes, but ever since the surgery, they taste a little flat.
I have had quite a few surgeries but never remember this feeling before. Could this be a side effect from the general anesthesia? Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this?
