Did Chemo for breast cancer. Ended up with terrible taste in mouth. Further?
My wife has been treated over the past 9 months for breast cancer . First with chemo then surgery and finally radiation that just ended. One of the side effects of the chemo was a terrible taste in her mouth. After chemo it cleared up but has returned worse then before. How long will this last and is there anything to be done for it?
Hi, bad taste in the mouth should resolve in 6 to 9 months post chemotherapy. It will gradually recover and there is no standard treatment for it. Still she can use honey with food which will help her to recover. Take care.
