Topic: Anosmia / parosmia?
My Mom, diagnosed with CC, has had anosmia / parosmia (cant smell / phantom putrid smells) for a good 6 months before bing diagnosed.
Our problem is that she can't eat lot of foods because the scent makes her vomit. So she's on a strict Ensure diet just to get calories down, and very bland foods. No meat at all is tolerated. Even veggies are tough.
She hasn't even started chemo yet.
Does anybody else here have that symptom?
