That did not happen to me, but in reading these boards, it seems it happens to some.

Well....I'm 12 1/2 weeks post op and still, as Harlee says, taste metal mostly with sweets although with a few other foods that are very mildly spicey. Mostly with milk chocolate though. Dark chocolate is starting to taste good!!
Embrace the beauty of silent moments and simple things.
