Hi everyone, my dads doing well. He finished his last radiation treatment 10 days ago.
My question is when do the taste buds come back, he still finds it difficult to taste anything.

    It takes time. I had radiation to the neck and so I'm guessing that it took me longer than those who don't have to have that. Things started to taste more normal after a few months, but there are some things that I still don't like soda pop. Don't know exactly why that is, but 2 years later it still tastes kind of salty to me. Congrats to you and your dad. Yahoo on being done with treatments!
