Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hello all,

I am 19 years old and had a tonsillectomy performed 6 days ago (7/20). Since day three the back and sides of my tongue have produced a metallic/bitter taste that is the strongest when consuming foods. The front half of my tongue tastes food normal, but the back half, no matter what is placed on it tastes like metal. My tongue is also quite swollen (almost hurts more than the back of my throat) and I am having trouble speaking and swallowing as a result of this. I am really concerned about this, primarily the loss of taste! Any input would be greatly appreciated (since I am freak out mode about this) :-) Thanks!


Hi did you taste ever come back? im going through the same thing right now
