Please describe how polio has changed your life.
I recovered sufficiently for military service in 1961 but started experiencing pain in boot camp and while serving aboard an aircraft carrier. I thought I was just out of shape. As the years went by I noticed extreme pain after hard work. By 1992 I used a cane. Then two canes. Then added a KAFO. Followed by forearm crutches and a wheel chair for longer distances. Now I use a mobility scooter. PPS is quite an inconvenience, but I keep as active as I can and find a way to do what I want to do.
How did you find out about PolioToday.org?

Welcome to Polio Today - Polio Class of '53 just before my 6th birthday. I started out with 2 KAFO's then to two AFO's then none until about 11 years ago for foot drop.  Inconvenient; for sure on that.
