Is bad mouth taste an after effect of total knee replacement?

Hi I m a 57 year old female who had a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago. My problem is that nothing tastes right except strawberry ice cream and sometimes chocolate. Meats, fruits, vegetables, salads , bread, nothing. Do you have any idea how long this will last

Hello,

Some types of medications can cause changes in taste or loss of taste. Also, some medications used to stabilize blood pressure can cause changes in taste. Please write to me which medications are you using and I can tell you which is causing the symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Olgeta Xhufka, General & Family Physician
