sorry for the bad spelling my mind and my typing fingers (2) some time just don;t work together ,i work in a factory my computers are machine controllers not keyboards for typing ha ha


Hi Frank, I've had the metallic taste during both my chemo treatments. We ended up using non metal utensils for all cooking, using wooden spatulas or spoons and I even used plastic cutlery to eat with. It helped a bit and I used to eat spicy foods to help kill the taste.

Good luck Rab.


hi rabbie thanks i;ll try the non matalic cooking tools , i wish i could eat spicy foods but the tarceva drug has a real big side effect on the gut and bowl anything slightly spicy and im off and running to the loo mite try chewing gum or mints, thanks has given me some thoughts
