Anesthesia

I lost my sense of taste!

03/18/2008

Question:

I am 51 years old and I had my first surgical experience with general anesthesia on Feb. 13, 2008. Since the surgery, food has no taste! I have read a few postings about this very same phenomena and felt compelled to let you know that this does exist and there MUST be an explanation for it.
