Re: 1/2 thyroid removed loss sense taste
Congratulations on your lab results! It must be a great relief. I have not had surgery on my thyroid-so can't say whether that would be the reason for loss of taste. But, some medications could do that. Maybe when the drugs used in surgery clear through your system you will be better. I hope so. I know anesthetic really affects me alot. Perhaps drinking alot of water and getting some aerobic ex. when you can will help clear any drugs out your system.If a little time doesn't change the situation you should check with the doc. Also if you are now on any pain relief meds, that could be doing it too. Please let us know if you get your sense of taste back.Good luck!
