I contracted Polio whe I was 3 years old…that was 57 years ago! It infectd my left side of my body. I was very fortunate to receive the Sabin vaccine during the Beta trials. Now I find I need to prove that I did contract polio and that I suffer from PPS! Other than the obvious…. my left arm and left leg and foot are much shorter and diminished than my right arm and leg. Also my left foot has an extreme arch due to the boot that came with my braces. Does anyone know how I can possible prove that I have PPS or that I did have Polio.
Any help would be sincerely appreciated. Thank you!
I’m 71 years old and had polio when I was 10. The last few years little by little my legs are getting weaker and walking more difficult. I live in Rancho Palos Verdes California and have been unable to locate a support group in this area. I’d certainly appreciate it if anyone knew of a group close to where I live. Thanks so much.
