loss of smell
Today I went to see an ENT because I have been having problems for the past 8 months with loss of smell and loss of flavor.This happened after the flu. He did a ct scan and discovered that I do not have a frontal sinus. He also said that my nerves were probably damaged from the virus. I didn't know that the flu was viral. He said that I could be put on a zinc supplement but he didn't think it would help since I had this problem over 6 months. Also, I have allergies to zinc. This is so frustrating. I eat things that I don't normally eat because I can't taste flavor of foods. I am afraid that I will start to gain weight. I guess I'm eating in hope that I will eventually taste something. As far as smell, I'm afraid that I may not be able to smell fire or a gas leak or even food that is spoiled. Is there any hope? Can someone help?
