Thanks everyone. John is at the "no taste" stage (rather than the "perverted/yucky taste" stage). He is still eating grits, eggs, oatmeal, soups often. He has experimented with broccoli, sweet potato and a few other single ingredient foods. Coffee and tea still are pleasant. I'll post when we can see some marked improvement in appetite and enjoyment of food again. Right now, it is purely functional. ~ Karen

It sounds like your husband is making progress...that is good news. My husband is making minimal progress in his eating....about 4 1/2 mos. post trtmt. We ate at Cracker Barrel today and he said the green beans tasted like cigarette smoke and the chicken didn't have any flavor. As you said, Karen, eating is functional a lot of times. My heart goes out to him and all who have had to endure this painful journey. As someone posted, this is the new normal for my husband. Inspite of not being able to enjoy eating, my husband said he is thankful to the Lord for his life...I am, too. My husband lifts my spirits! Thanks for listening.

Hi Karen

Coffee started helping my taste buds-thank God. Chicken was the worst even 4years out-sometimes the texture just does't bode well. Taste buds do retirn but even now somedays they just revert back-but it REALLY does get better and everyone is a little different.
