Loss of taste

I was diagnosed with Myeloma and AL Amyloidosis in May 2016. After taking a lot of medication for 7 months, fortunately my condition went into remission and I was taken off all drugs which included Revlimid in December 2016. I am now 10 months into remission but I have lost the taste of food. Although it has improved slightly it is still there. When will it come back. Has anyone experienced a similar problem. LH ## Still have the loss of taste. Anyone experienced this and what to do!
