Hi Arshad

There is no possible way for us to answer that question. Your own doctors have to answer it based on your health history and your current health status and it's likely a full exam and testing would have to occur first.

I'm sorry we cannot be of more help.

Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

We wish you the best in any treatments that can be offered for post polio syndrome but unfortunately we have no information about the treatments or success rates of the hospitals in India who offer these options. You would have to contact the hospitals themselves to find out this information.

We wish you the best,

Susan
