Smell and taste are linked through the vomeronasal organ.

Can you lose your sense of taste after you have a tonsillectomy?

Yes, it is possible. Two things can contribute to this:1.) During the surgery they will pry your mouth open (and when I say pry, I mean pry) with a metal device. They're rather rough with it so there is a bit of a chance that your tongue will be damaged. This causes you to want to not move your tongue and because of the swelling and inflammation you tongue will be less sensitive to food.2.) You will most likely be congested and since smell is a part of taste, your taste is duller.You should expect your taste to return after a month or two, and it is normally not a thing to worry about.
