Had CABG 3X Bypass Surgery 2 Months Ago. Since The Operation I Have A Really Bad Taste, And My Smell Is Very Intense.

Had CABG 3X Bypass Surgery 2 Months Ago. Since The Operation I Have A Really Bad Taste, And My Smell Is Very Intense.

Since the operation I have a really bad taste, and my smell is very intense. Most foods taste horrible, especially eggs, cheese, and most foods. The only thing that taste ok is fruit. I am on clopidogrel, atorvastatin, metoprolol, and several vitamin supplements. Cardiologist took me off lisinopril to try to see if that was the cause, but after a week, still an issue. Has anyone else had this problem, if so did you figure out what was causing it.

I'm almost six months out from heart transplant. There are some things I still can't eat cuz they don't taste good anymore. And I used to eat the things all the time. Not sure if normal or not. So I just navigate around different foods and stay away from the sodium as much as possible.

I don’t have any useful information for what is causing your lack of appetite, but I know how you feel. I’ve always had a good appetite and since last July (2020) I’ve lost 51 pounds because I have no appetite. I think I’m hungry but when I sit down to eat I can usually eat only half and sometimes just have to leave the table! So I know why I’ve lost the weight (because I’m not eating). but I don’t know what’s causing it. Troublesome! I hope you find an answer and are able to feel well again soon.

A couple of my meds have pretty much erased my sense of taste except an occasional coke or Pepsi. Some vitamins can cause that bad taste. I Eat just to satisfy my hunger. I hope in a few months your taste returns. 🙏🏻🙏🏻I will keep you in my prayers
