Hi everyone,

How are you today? 

Lung cancer and its associated treatment can affect nutrition and diet: loss of appetite, changes in taste and/or smell, metallic taste during chemotherapy... When your food doesn't taste or smell the way you expect it to, it can affect both your appetite and contribute to weight loss.

Have any of you experienced changes in your sense of smell or taste? How do you deal with it, if so? Are there any foods you avoid or try to eat more of? Has your diet changed in any way?

Take care,
