My nephew-in-law -- who has no known cardiac issues -- lost his sense of taste last summer or fall. I haven't gotten an update on whether he still is having a problem with it.
I lost my sense of taste for a short while post-op. I still have some problems with sense of taste -- can't drink water w/out doctoring it heavily with lime or lemon. Ditto with iced tea. All since my MVR.
