Please use this app to find & consult another ENT Surgeon who will examine you and help diagnose your problem as taste is never affected by tonsillectomy. If anything it should get enhanced especially if adenoids are removed.

Hello, loss of taste sensation is one of the complication of tonsillectomy ....its subjective feeling sometimes , due to local anesthesia which blocks the sensation of tongue one may feel tastelessness.... you have to consult operated ENT surgeon regarding the query .
