I was treated recently for skin cancer under my jaw. I had some chemo and main treatment was Radiation. During my treatment, I was okay as I was eating to keep my weight. 4 weeks have now passed since my radiation treatment and unfortunately, I lost taste after 7 weeks. My taste is slowly coming back but depending on the type of food I eat. However, it is not what it used to be. I have an after taste of some kind in my mouth - very medicinal or salty.
Does anyone know if the taste ever comes back or improves over time?
I would be grateful for any comment.
Hi @Rico2018 ,
I'm glad you've finished your treatment. Your taste should come back, eventually. You'll just have to give it time. Regarding the medicinal or salty taste, I can't think of anything that will mask them. Good luck. 🙂
