Congrats on your surgery.

The taste thing is very common. It can continue for a while too - a good four months for me if I remember correctly. But it does pass & it comes back slowly on the way. It does help keep your food intake low though - lol cause so much tastes revolting. Plus you may notice your sense of smell becomes very sensitive, nausea inducing sensitive for some.

Are you sipping your fluids with a break in between. I was a Water gulper before surgery so the sipping was tough for me. A mouth full was too much & would cause tightness. I started using a straw which restricted my gulping. Sometimes drinking warmer fluids helps. Try drinking room temperature water or hot tea (if it’s allowed on your plan).

It should get better every day. Experiment with temperatures and flavors...sometimes taste buds change.

Good luck!!

That happened to me too, and even now that I am on soft food diet. I find these recipes I wanna try and I get all jazzed up and make it, then a couple bites in I'm grossed out and never wanna see it again. It's slowly passing. I'm not sure the reason, but I know it's frustrated. Just keep in mind it gets easier. [emoji18]

Thanks for the responses everyone! I figured I’d be starving and want to eat everything! Not! Everything I eat tastes gross and I have no appetite! Hopefully it will get better soon!! 🤞
