Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders

Food tastes Bad after Breathing Tube



I had my gal bladder removed a week ago. I had to have a breathing tube, which ended up cutting my throat up a bit. Ever since, when I swallow food, it tastes normal until it reaches a certain spot in my throat, and then it becomes very foul tasting. Is this going to last very long and is there any way to alter the food so it doesn`t taste bad in my throat?
