My mother has problems with taste also but chocolate had helped her a lot. Try drinking chocolate shakes or eat a chocolate candy bar. Use lots of the lotion they recommended and exercise as much as you can.

Try to eat things that you may have not always liked ,it may taste different. Try shakes and smoothies. Drink lots of water. Water was a slight problem for me because it had a slimy texture to me after chemo! Your taste foe food and appetite should come back. I also had a double masectomy and reconstruction The same day. A lemon added to water helps the taste. Eat small amounts frequently. Tightness should improve lotion helps, use it at least twice a day I use the lightest Eucerin.most formulas were judt to heavy and painful to rub in! Skin calming is the best one. Are you on Chemo?I had chemo and radiation. Feel free to ask me anything! Good luck! Denise. Ps you can pm on face book if you like.

@Texastiger how long have you had this complication of not having your taste back? Has it been months?
