Yes! All smells are making me nauseous lately. I hate Protein Shakes. I am only about two weeks out so hopefully it gets better. I hope it gets better for you soon also.

My surgery was March 3 and I am in the same boat. Can’t stand the smell of food. I can’t stand to go into the Giant the smell of the chickens they are cooking makes me sick. When I get home I have to change my clothes as I can still smell it on them.I am not getting in all my Protein or Water due to this nausea. I go to Dr on Thursday, sure hope he can help me.

Changes to your taste buds are very common. Your sense of smell changing is less common but it does occur. Certain smells become amplified & others turn your stomach.

It didn’t happen to me after surgery but when I developed an intolerance to chilli & curry some years ago it did. They used to hold curry cook offs where I worked & the smell would permeate the office through the air conditioning. I’d have to leave as I felt like I’d throw up. It was like a warning to avoid that food as it would make me sick.

Walking through or near food courts at shopping centres can be a nightmare.

Unlike mine which is permanent, yours is temporary. It will get better for you.
