I have actually cut back on the diet cokes. I think it would be unlikely that the aspartame would just happen to affect my taste/smell right after I had surgery.
I've heard others who have had long term effects from general anesthesia. I have had 19 surgeries with about half of them requiring general anesthesia-could there be cumulative damage over the years?
