The numbness and risks of neuropathy come with territory for so many of the drugs.  I have battles with it still.  Comes and goes.  The floor doc for the transplant came in every day and said GET OUT OF BED and WALK or else.  They had treadmills on the floor.  So I guess, keep moving, or swim laps or something.

Sorry, didn't see this post until this morning.

Yeah, I hate that I can't get massage during the one phase of my life when I EFFING NEED IT THE MOST.  I am also a Reiki master, and wish that Reiki had the same physically relaxing effects as getting the kinks worked out by a skilled massage therapist...but it just does not.  Also?  NO practitioners in the area that I have been able to find.   I went to a Reiki meetup group once and they were not actually doing the Reiki with which I am familiar and that I would prefer.  Sigh.

Talked to my nurse before I saw your post.... I asked her about thrush, and she doesn't think it's thrush because there is no white color to it, and it's only on a tiny spot, but she called in the nystatin numbing mouth rinse just in case.  I've used it twice so far.

It's odd how some foods set the spot on fire (plain, bland hummus, for example), and other things don't (soy sauce). 

I have been taking two walks a day, and working out on my little elliptical, doing my hand weights, and my yoga routine.  I also stretch and flex hands and feet numerous times per day. 

The only other things I can do is wait, and hope that the neuropathy goes away like she said it should.  Thanks to all for the good thoughts.
