I am on my 77 day. If you have zinc deficiency then taking zinc tablets from what I have heard should definitely make you better. I really hope it works! I am about two weeks away from the three month period. Then again i am not noticing any change so u don't know if I will see anything substantial in two weeks. For some people it takes six months to even notice any change. As for smell therapy. I bought some essential oils. And the idea is to sniff then four to five times a day and after a 12 week period you can expect to see some increase in your threshold level. I believe it helped me when I was doing it obsessively the first month. With the stress of my job right now, it has been difficult to keep up. But I want to start doing it again. My doctor put me on steroids a week after my URI. I also had a secondary sinus infection which made matters worse. But much like you I didn't lose everything. I have about 60% on my right nostril and maybe 10% on my left. I also took a smell test a scratch and sniff type and did well. But then again I can barely taste my food. I also hope we get better. Let's wait to see what happens in 3-4 months and then again at six months. A lot of people do seem to get better but it takes time. For many it takes at least a year.
