Loss of Taste after Septorhinoplasty at 1 Week
The swelling, debris, and internal splints are all obscuring taste by altering smell. Once all of these things are removed from the equation, the taste should return. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
- Your nose is probably stuffy (like a cold) and it is preventing you from tasting food
- The symptoms will improve over the next few weeks where you should begin to taste food normally again
It will get better
