I am 2 months 1 week post-op. I quit smoking which may have something to do with the loss of taste. Here's what I am going through and please let me know if anyone else is experiencing the same thing! I stopped drinking soda as well and tried some gingerale the other day. GROSS. Chocolate, not the same but i still eat it! Anything candy that's basically pure sugar, jellybeans, gum, valentines hearts... gross. I seem to not have a problem with salty stuff. Anyone know when and if my taste will fully come back??????
I also had a tounge ring that I took out as well. Would that have something to do with it as well??? AND I MISS MY COFFEE!! Tastes like metal!!! So basically I quit smoking, quit coffee, quit sugar and soda. AND I still gained weight!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Was it worth it????
