Re: Post-polio and knee replacement

Hi Janet,
Thanks for writing. No idea if Dallas doctor knows about PPS, but doctor here gave me his name. I am waiting to see they will give me an appointment.

So, how are your knees? Is there no pain yet? It seems that at some point we will have to have something done. Have you heard if the chicken ????? shots help knees?

What do you do for exercise since on crutches? Older friend went to clinic in Houston years ago, and they did stretching exercises for her PPS. My doctor here tells me to walk. But that will just wear my knees out sooner. Wonder if a glider type machine will be bad also.

Take care. Good luck with your knees.

Jan
