This guy is missing his #nandos chicken! 🐓🍗 For those of you who know Kristian, you know how much he loves his hot sauce! 🌶🌶🌶 From a young age, he put that sh** on everything! 😅
Now, the chemo drugs have altered the taste receptor cells in his mouth which makes everything taste different...or have no taste at all. When the poor guy can actually "taste" something, it tastes bad (sometimes like metal).
This, along with a heightened sense of smell, nausea, and mouth/throat sores that make it excruciating to swallow, means that 95% of Kristian's intake is coming from an IV bag lately.
His love for spicy foods will have to wait....! #hypogeusia #dysgeusia #ageusia #chemo #chemosideeffects #tastebuds #alteredtastebuds #tastereceptors
