    Three months back I had a craniotomy/mastoidectomy surgery to fix a CSF leak in my ear. Post-op
    recovery seems very good except recently i have started getting a persistent mild salty taste in my
    mouth. No draiage from nose.

    I see a few other posts in this group about AN patients having this symptom with delayed onset 3-6
    months after surgery.

    Wanted to know if this is a cause for concern in terms of a relapse of leak or could be just due to
    the nerves that were cut during the surgery and I have to live with this? What kind of tests can be
    done to rule in/out possibilities?
