  1. Yes, my taste is mostly back now. There is still a slightly bad taste, but it's very slight and totally manageable. I also have a slightly odd sensation on the right side of my tongue, but that, too, is fading. Before it felt like I had either burned my tongue or had a numbing shot in my mouth that was wearing off. I do have hope that this will fade, too, but even if it doesn't I could totally live with it. Have you had the surgery or are you thinking about it?
  2. My audiologist recommended I get one. I probably will, though I want to find something the is somewhat fashionable before I do.
  3. Thanks! It's nice to have an idea of a time frame for what other people have experienced! I hope mine follows the same path! I've definitely ha a bit of change since the surgery, but it seems to have slowed down a bit now. But, remembering how things healed up from my knee surgery, that seems standard to have a slowing down period, where the changes aren't so noticeable.
  4. Does anyone who had this sensation after surgery remember how long it took for normalization? I had my surgery 6 days ago and was just wondering. I know there is a possibility that it may not go back to the way it was before surgery, but I'm really hoping it does!
