My sense of taste was definately changed. Anything I thought was spicy before is now unbearable. Anything with pepper has got to be kept at absolute minimum. And just in general, things I liked before, I couldn't care less about now. My complete surgery was in June '06

I had a complete thyroidectomy a couple of weeks ago and I have noticed a decrease in my sense of taste as well.  It's not significant, but there obviously has been a noticeable difference.

I'm right there with you. I had my thyroid removed 2 weeks ago and I am really trying to eat but everything taste like yuck. I feel like I don't know what I'm eating. So far ice cream is the only thing that taste normal but I can't live off of that.
