I feel i have turned the corner of pain, I am now only on paracetamol and anti bio's. I am now 12 days post op.
I am eating and drinking BUT I cant taste the food everything tastes of METAL, and I struggle with getting some food down.
normal? I hope you can answer my question. thank you Faye

It is also responsible for innervating parts of the back of your throat. After an tonsillectomy, this nerve may be disrupted somewhat, and this can cause problems with taste.
