    Changing taste and smells. Not lost, but changed.

      When I was doing chemo I looked forward on my good days to eating some things I liked rather than the bland diet which was all I could tolerate on my bad days. The anticipation was better than the reality. Everything tasted terrible and I was happy to return to white chicken and vanilla milkshakes. Post chemo my sense of taste and smell have pretty much returned to normal

      With platinum-based chemo such as FOLFOX, when I ate those dark chocolates wrapped in foil, they tasted just like I left the foil on. A metallic taste is the best description I have experienced.
      It has gone away one year after chemo stopped.

      I am years and years past chemo and 11 years past radiation, but still my taste is different and seems to keep changing. It must have something to do with the radiation killing off saliva glands and damaging everything else in the neck/throat/chin area.

    Every day that I watch TV I see ads on from attorneys who are looking for people to join a class action lawsuit of some type.

      No. I am not one who joins suits like those.

      I did contact one of the Round Up ones, but didn't follow through when they were asking for more personal info than I cared to supply. Not sure if scammers, but there are a number of different law firms looking for Roundup "victims".

      I have wondered about that too.
