Yes, it might be. I'm not sure re answers, re whether a blast at taste or what.
I've a big lack of nasal nerve endings, have been tested by a UC researcher, failed dismally all sorts of smell tests... but not entirely. I've created, I suppose, my own universe, or maybe science is off. Whatever, is is not clear I enjoy food?
Taste has been expanded recently to Unami, maybe some of that would help.
So, if your taste is blasted, Robbie, what a pain in the ass. Wondering how long term that is. I had some rads, not re the jaw, and some of the sensibility has come back over time.
