I had a laparoscopic appendectomy a week ago and recovering

Patient

Q: I had a laparoscopic appendectomy a week ago and recovering well. Back to normal diet and bowel movements are ok now; however for the past couple of days, I have had a taste in my mouth that I can only relate to faeces. No sinus problems or no bad breath, just a horrible taste in my mouth and throat. Any ideas what it is? It doesnt go away after brushing my teeth and its putting me off of eating and also making me feel sick. Cant put up with it any longer. No health problems etc..

Symptoms:  Just a horrible taste of faeces in mouth.
