Polio Vaccination and Seizures
good evening Ted, My son is progressing well. just to recap about his condition, he has mild mental retardation, with spasm on his hands and legs. He is getting better at academics, though his behaviour remains the same, the biting has stopped, but the anger, pinching etc hasn't reduced much. but i feel some improvement is better than nothing. I have started giving alot of coriander leaves and apples, so my daughter has progressed a bit from her previous conditions of infrequent seizures. it has reduced quite a bit , especially with regards to food. she is eating better but stil not putting on much weight , she is 2 years but still weighs on ly 10 kilos. I have 2 questions with regards to my daughter:
1. i stopped vaccinating her after her first birthday, especially because i didn't want to her to face the problems her brother faces, who has been vaccinated completely till 3.5 years of age. i am currently in india, and many people here put vaccination for polio as its something that many children seem to have here due to insanitary issues and filthy living conditions. i am scared my daughter may get polio if i don't vaccinate her. is it alright for her to have this vaccination, as just now some of her seizures have reduced or should i delay it till five years of age?
2. i couldnt find magnesium chloride in dubai and cant seem to find it in india. is there any pharmaceutical company that you may know of that will courier it to me in india?
sorry for the questions, but the vaccinations are something EACH n every doctor in india prescribes and all doctors here are surprised and shocked that i haven't give necessary injections to my daughter yet. i'm getting worried.
