Wine! No Really...a Question For Serious Wine Drinkers :)



Recommended Posts

I am two months and/or two weeks out from surgery but my doc said I can taste and spit to get my palate back. I am doing fine on whites, but reds all taste like they've gone bad. Pinot Noir is a favorite and I don't want to miss out on drinking every bottle in the cellar with DH LOL

Did you find your palate went off after surgery when you jumped back onto the happy bus? Does this go away????? This is a tragedy LOL

I'm a month out, and although I haven't jumped back onto the happy bus again (yet !), my palate has gone completely off the rails for everything else so I'm thinking blabber... er, uh... happy juice won't taste worth a flip either. I'm SO hoping that this will change. Nothing tastes good after surgery :angry:

I probably shouldn't be posting this but I am an alcoholic who doesn't like to get drunk- make sense? I started drinking 1 month after surgery. Pinot is my absolute favorite!!!! Last night I had two glasses but couldn't finish the second. I haven't found a change in my palate- I just can't drink as much and it's not because I'm drunk - I just lose interest after a certain amount. And I'm not like most people who get drunk faster- I haven't noticed any change with that. I am 6 weeks out from surgery.

Interesting :) I do expect it will hit me harder (I can hold my own...or could) with the best of them, but I do get drunk if I have too much (I have a friend like you though so I get it). but we'll see about that. With food, my palate is fine. I do find I don't have any interest in "fake" foods, like popsicles, Jello, etc. but things I taste taste like they are supposed to, except for red wine. I almost feel like when I was first learning about wine and only drank Chardonnay! This is not a good thing LOL

I have never had a great nose oddly, but my palate was excellent. I can pick up the most subtle hints of flavors...I like that about me :P DH and a friend opened a lovely bottle of Cab the other night...Cade, very beautiful wines, and I got vinegar and nothing else from a wine I love ;(

I guess I just have to keep working on it. this is not a bus I'm going to quit catching LOL

Gosh, I hope the palate loss is not permanent! I love some wine now and then but I guess the days of pairings are probably over.

I love me some wine! I didn't have any until abour 7 months out and by then everything was tasting pretty normal. Foods tasted way off and smells really got to me early out. I think your palate will come back!

That said, I went out last weekend and was apparently drinking mine and my SIL's wine and got falling down drunk! UGH! I can't even think about wine now without getting a headache!

Your SIL needs to learn to hold her glass tighter LOL

This weekend was a major wine weekend and I am finding my palate is doing much better. Not good enough but I'll just have to keep practicing :)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
