@Cranky_1959 Hi and welcome to the Scope community. There aren't too many left like us who suffer from the after effects of polio so yes it would be good to talk. In my case I had polio in 1950 at age of 2. I struggled through my adolescent years and eventually found a not too physical job which served me well enough until just over 15 years ago when a whole load of health probs set in, not all to do with polio. On the scrapheap at 55.
Main thing is that now the legs are totally shot and mobility is at absolute zero but getting the medics to officially accept the existence of PPS is part of the problem. Most of them have no knowledge of the disease and just pop out the painkillers. Maybe hoping we'll just drop off the perch and the problem will have gone away??
Would be happy to chat anytime.
