I think the guy who performed your scope is wack! I would let your surgeon know about your experience and would tell him you will not go back to that guy if you ever need another scope (which you may not). I would discuss with your surgeon what this guy said to you and your husband and see what he has to say about strictures. I'm sorry the guy was such a jerk!
As your food choices expand (ie adding more veggies and fruits to your diet) the metallic taste you are experiencing should go away. In the beginning you have to be so focused on just getting your protein in that there is no room for anything else. Living on just protein can cause your body to go into ketosis and that causes the metallic taste. So hang in there, it will be a thing of the past very soon.
My surgeon's office recommends Flintstones chewable vitamins. But I know I've seen some disparaging remarks about them on this board. Can anyone tell me why they are bad news? Thanks.
