HI Thank for asking to HCM I really appreciate your concern looking to the given history first of all sorry for this now as long as the query of your bad breath is concern this may not be due to the disease you have or the procedure that is being done for the disease but this could be due to the gastritis or due to the dental condition in my opinion you need to consult the physician for this, take care and have a nice day.
