First of all, I would like to thank Christine Hinzmann and the Citizen staff for the excellent job they did with my interview on post polio syndrome.
By the phone calls and comments I have received The Citizen is well read by many people. Many have not heard of the problems, some did not even know about polio.
A reminder to post polio survivors. Please look up and follow The Ten Commandments of post polio syndrome study. Look at what symptoms are polio and separate them from the other medical symptoms.
We get everything every other older person gets plus special ones from the polio. If you can not tell your doctor the polio symptoms from other medical symptoms, he/she does not know how to treat you and may miss some problems.
On talking to several people, the doctors, physiotherapists, and others have not looked at or been taught about effects of polio on your body. It is assumed to be a controlled disease and our numbers are declining rapidly, so no study is needed. Partially true. The spread of polio is gaining ground. Many are not getting there children immunized. In a few years this will be a ticking time bomb.
Isnt life grand.
