hi sandy,

appreciate your response.  I do not know of any other people with PPS here.  my doc has said he has another patient with PPS and with HIPPA he can't really give me a name.  I use to check PPS website more frequently.  this past month I decided to browse thru the member list and this is how I located you.

as far as aging and PPS, for me, the limitations have increased with  increased fatigue, muscle pain, stamina.  pretty much follows what I've read from Bruno's and Halstead's books.

just noticed I made an error in my phone number.  it's 541-404-5564.  ooops.  need to proof read typing.

didn't have any expectations in reaching out.  think I simply needed to say to another polio/pps, am still breathing.  had an appointment with my cardiologist new PA.  never met him before.  found it interesting he made no mention of polio/pps during appointment, despite obvious physical difference in leg and hip.  oh well, he was maybe 30yrs old.  if I see him again think I will innocently ask him if he could look into why I have so much atrophy in right leg and hip.  I find some odd sense of humor in that thought.

thanx again for your response sandy,

Thomas Blastsic
