    My wife was involved in a car accident as a teenager, ended up with a fractured skull - yes, there are days when both of us cite that particular occasion as the sole reason for her marrying me - and was left without sense of smell or taste for 6 months plus. In her own words: " That was the only time that I seriously contemplated taking my own life." 'Nuff said.

    Ah, to be young again...:biggrin:

    Unusual, but not unheard of. I've had maybe a dozen do that in my lifetime.

    At times the F bomb fits perfectly with what one is trying to articulate, but more often than not, it's a lack of a working vocabulary.

    She lost her sense in more ways than one. lol Yeah, losing two of the five senses would not be an option. My olfactory senses are acute, hence one reason I'm able to enjoy food and cigars so much.


    I'm taking Nasonex, and allergies are the real issue here.

    Being fed up with allergies is what prompted my father to do the cryo. Unfortunately for him, it didn't help that much, and I don't think his sense of smell/taste ever really improved all that much.

    TBH, it was 25 years ago and I'm not really sure exactly. I just remember him talking all nasally for over a month and complaining about having to blow out all the dead tissue for so long. Can't imagine they still do that procedure.

    It probably was liquid nitrogen. I had the same procedure done on me twice 10 or so years ago.

    Got offered a gig for creating a full-stack website for a "revolutionary new app" for a undervalued payout. Yay startups...
