Hi,
How is your Mom? The metallic taste may be caused by dysgeusia, a distortion of the sense of taste, which may be a side effect of chemotherapy and other medications she may be taking.  Some medications or a change of her current medicines may be prescribed by her doctor to help provide relief. Hope this helps. Take care and do keep us posted.

I was diagnosed with Pancoast Tumor with Horners Syndrome I did have chemo, radiation and surgery.
During the time I was having the chemo and radiation I experienced a terrible taste in my mouth whenever I had to eat. Then it went away but came back after I had surgery. I could not eat anything. Everything tasted metallic. I lost. 45 pounds from this. Then one day I had soft ice cream and it did not have the taste. So I ended up eating soft ice cream as often as I could. After about six weeks after the surgery my taste came back slowly. Hopefully your Moms taste buds have came back by now.
