Terrible tase in mouth and light green coating on tongue


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Didn't know if anyone could give me input on this. My Dad (SCLC) has been done with chemo for 2 months and just finishes his brain radiation (PCI) two weeks ago. He still has a horrible tase in his mouth and the light green coating. He was really in a panic this week as he thought it may have gone to his brain. I think I calmed him down and he is going to the oncologist this morning at 11:00 a.m. Has anyone had experience with this? I did check on line and found out that sometimes the Ambien which he takes can give that metallic taste in the mouth. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks so much!

Well, my Dad was at the ears, nose and throat specialist today and it is called Black Hair Tongue. This was caused from the PCI he had done. Just an FYI, in case anyone else ever gets asked about this. It can last up to a year! Just glad my Dad is really o.k. Thanks so much!
