    Post-Tonsilectomy Taste Issues

    I had my tonsilectomy on 6/28 and have developed a condition called Dysgeusia. I have lost 46 lbs in 86 days. Nothing tastes right. I was able to eat Menudo for a little while but my **. put me on an allergy medicine that has helped with my allergies but took away the one thing I could eat. I tried to stop the allergy medicine but my allergies were just too severe.
    My taste is bitter, metallic, tangy and other flavors I just can't describe. I can't take more than a few bites of something. I feel so depressed. I feel like I am wasting away.
    Is there anyone else out there who has had the same problem and if it did last longer than 3 months, did your taste ever return to normal? Someone give me some hope!
    Thank you!
