I had my first chemo treatment and landed in the hospital due to a very severe reaction. As a result I will not receive more chemo. But how long does it take for the metallic taste to go away? I can barely tolerate any food or liquids!

    I have had the metallic taste, every time.....The lemon dros really helped...I could drink buttermilk but every thing else was rough....if I brushed my teeth with baking soda it seemed to help.

    I had it for all the treatments. The only thing I could was chocolate and rusty pipe. It was about a month after my last treatment before my taste started to come back.
