My Dad finished 35 radiation treatments in October for squamous base of tongue cancer, stage 2. My Dad is 77 and in excellent health and tolerated the treatments well, but, of course, with mucous, loss of taste, etc.
My Dad is slowly getting his taste back (sweet taste coming slowly) but claims that he has a metallic taste in his mouth that does not go away.
My question is: has anyone else experienced this? Also, how long did it take others to start tasting their food again? It seems to vary alot by person.
Many thanks to everyone who posts on here as this has helped me to help my Dad.
