Hi Doc,

I met a boy for marriage, I initially felt he has short legs and does not walk properly, he hinders while walking.. but as time passed i guess i got used to it and dont' feel that he hinders much.but he walks differently...then I took him to met my parents..
my parents are not agreeing for this telling he has polio. his hands are little bit shot when compared to his body.. I asked him he says he does not have any problem..what do u feel doe she really has some problem..please guide me.Is it good marrying him?

Thank you for asking!
Disproportionate extremities does not necessarily means he has polio. Decision of getting married to him is nothing with polio, even if he has polio does not mean your siblings will have. Its your personal decision and mere limping should not be the reason to deny. Get him to the neurologist and let them sort out and decide finally what is the limping significant for. Too deficient history to comment on any further. I hope you see it in a right perspective.
Meanwhile visit our health centre for further guidance.
Take care
