Loss of Appetite and Bad Taste in Mouth After Gall Bladder Surgery+weight loss

I had gallbladder surgery two months ago.  Surgery went fine.  My primary care physician said I needed fluids when I came in and they overdosed me on Iv's and then had to give me lasix to get rid of the fluid.  I have heart failure and have a defibrillator/pacemaker  (when I went in, my heart problems were under control) so she said that threw me into heart failure; therefore, my surgery ended up not being so easy.  When I got home, I got a severe case of gout which she felt was brought on by the lasix so now my uric acid levels are 12,4 and I am taking Alluprinol.  However, my main problem in the last two months is loss of appetite and a horrible taste of any type of food I try to eat.  I have lost 20 lbs.  They keep telling me this will go away.  Does this seem normal?
