Sense of smell post op????????
Of course it doesn't seem as drastic as yours. I can eat my regular foods without problems. Water and everything else go down fine.
I am almost 2 weeks out - and had the same problem - first night, family ate (frz.) lasagne - and had to take liquid gravol. Now just really offensive smells get to me - like the kitty litter that my daughter had put off changing. I am still a tad queasy, but "normal" food smells are now easier to take, for the most part.

OMG! 3 months of this weird sensory deviation? I would be ok with it if it were taking away cravings. I would say it's best this way. However, when I eat things I find that they taste pretty normal so far. Mind you, I haven't tried things with ultra pungent smells like say seafood or pungent cheeses. Only protein shakes seem to give off an ultra funky smell. I hope I'm able to get through that. By Christmas I'd like to smell good holiday foods. We'll see.
