@craigmaloney Oh yeah, I remember the taste thing... not just after radiotherapy (it really messed things up), but in general. I seemingly was a rare case however, as instead of fruits and veggies I could most easily eat meat and drink milkshakes during chemo, which everyone gladly organised for me. ❤

I strongly encourage everyone to pick up f.e. RPGs afterwards! The brain really takes a hit ("chemobrain"), but anything that makes you think helps recovering from it. 🙂


@Natanox Yeah, I can tell when my taster is off and when I need to drink more water. For me it's a consistent feeling like I've licked a bunch of stamps. Eventually it goes away but I have to filter that taste out when it hasn't quite left yet.
