Just finished my last round of chemo may22. My sense of taste has not returned. Well I can taste things but not very good. Just wondering if this improved for anyone and how long it took?
Thanks

I think it took about a month or maybe a little more for my taste to return, I finished treatment October 17, 2011 and by Thanksgiving I was able to eat and taste fairly good by then. Now I definitely have my taste back and eating too much. Making up for lost time that I couldn't eat anything, gotta ease up.
So it will come back.

I finished chemo march 21. I took a good 6 weeks for my taste to return to normal. Unfortunately I have gained 5 lbs due to overeating as I had forgotten how good food tasted :)
