Is it usually ppms that gets diagnosed in later life im 68 soon and going through process of diagnosis.

Hello

Have a look at this page from The MS Trust: https://www.mstrust.org.uk/research/research-updates/update131014-can-ms-begin-over-fifties

​It’s a bit old now, but they seem to have found that almost half of the late onset group of people in their study (aged 50 to 72) were diagnosed with PPMS whereas very few younger people were diagnosed with progressive MS from the outset.

This doesn’t mean that you will be diagnosed with PPMS, just that it’s more likely as you are older (assuming you are diagnosed with MS).
