Horrible taste in mouth?!?



Recommended Posts

Hey All -

For those of you recently banded, do you have a horrible taste in your mouth? I had it during my pre-op diet, but it's a symptom of ketosis. I went to bed last night and had a green tongue. I googled it and apparently it's a side effect of the anesthesia, and not an issue. I've been trying to drink as much as possible, but my mouth is gross!!!! Anyone else??

I had icky taste in my mouth for about 4 days post-op. I associated it with the Protein shakes, seems like no matter how many times I brushed my teeth it was still there.

Can't say I have it right now, and I haven't really thought about it for a few days so hopefully its not a long lasting thing.

Did they give you antibiotics? I recently had my gallbladder out and have experienced a somewhat similar thing to what you described and when I mentioned it to my doctor he said it may be from the antibiotics. I had a nasty taste in my mouth and some of my tastebuds had swollen up and it feels like there is this slimy residue I cant get off my tongue. Yuck!

I noticed that my tongue is very fuzzy. I use the tongue cleaner, but it does not stay clean as long. I don't have a nasty taste.

God, more foul mouth syndrome to look forward to?

I talk to a LOT of people in my job (in fact, I barely ever shut up!) and I have been so self conscious of having funky breath during this process.

I know it's funky, because I can taste it - I've been chewing on gum like a cow!

Well ladies, I found out that I have thrush! I have white spots all over my tongue, sides and back of my mouth. I'm thinking that may be causing some of the problem. Waiting for my PCP to call me back and hoping he'll just call in a prescription for me. Here's hoping!

I posted this as a possibility to someone in one of these forums a while back. I had that happen to me once, unrelated to surgery, I first thought it was dry lips, etc.. The prescriptions works quick, eating yogurt helps too! I think it is easy to get thrush and the like on these diets we're on until we can eat normal.. not much balance!

Hope it clears quickly!!!

I had my surgery yesterday and my mouth tasted terrible from the second I woke up in recovery. My sister was kind enough to confirm the bad breath! I've brushed my teeth a few times and had as much Water as I'm supposed to have. Thanks for the heads up about thrush.

I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering what the outcome was with the thrush. I recognized mine immediately,as I used to work in a daycare where some of the babies would have it. I called my lap-band coordinator, but haven't received a call back. Am thinking of calling my PCP b/c I'm miserable! Enough of this already!
