I was diagnosed with SCC on the right side base-of-tongue in July 2010. I started treatment in late September 2010. I had 35 radiation treatments and 3 chemo (simplatin). That was 2 years ago and I am doing great. The only thing is my taste still has not come back. I can taste food, and the first couple of bites actually taste OK...then the third bite on taste bad. Bread and sweets are a no-no.
Mexican food seems to be the only food that seems to taste good through the entire meal.
Has any one else experienced this? Has anyone else gone 2 years without their taste fully recovering?
