After the TKR, about a week, I began to experience a smell - not pleasant. i thought I might have spilled something or the like. Washed everything - including me. But, there it was again-everywhere.
Come to find out that for a few of us the anesthesia (general or spinal) can result in causing an odor - and one that only we can smell- It's not our immagination, it's very real. And, it can take weeks to months to go away - time it takes for the liver to clear the chemicals. Some people can even, unfortunately, taste it, too.
