I had a bad taste in my mouth too. Kind of a metallic heartburn. I had my gallbladder out at the same time as my LAVH, so I just assumed it was related to the gallbladder surgery.

It could be a side effect of a medication. Are you taking anything new?

I too had a bad taste in mouth for several weeks after, I chalked it up to being anesethic (can't spell). Even when I coughed I could taste it. It must take several weeks for this to get out of your system .

I remember that taste very well. I had no appetite because everything tasted metallic.

I did find that foods which were sweeter in taste like yogurt, pudding, sweetened juices and the big nono's (junk food) were about the only things that did taste right. So I nibbled on sweets freqently, especially when I couldnt eat a regular meal due to taste.

It passed gradually, over about 2-3 weeks for me.

I was told by my doctor that it was caused from the anesthetic used.

You have the bigger part of it whipped. It should begin to diminish soon

Thank you all, for your replies. Now I wish that I could lose a little weight. My mom is still here taking care of me and I'm loving it. I have probably gained weight eating all the comfort foods of home, for two weeks now. LOL. Thanks again.
