This site is a blessing. I am 64 yrs old now. I use to run 7 to 8 miles everyday before having my left side done in 2007. After that surgery I was told that I would never be able to run again, and it was suggested that I take up cycling or swimming. Fast forward, I had my right side done Jan 2021. Completed physical therapy and was completely satisfied with just going swimming, which I do 3 to 4 times a week. I stumble up on this site by mistake and it was just awesome to read about some of the testimonies. Just to know that it is a possibility to run again just sent cold chills through my body. Especially since I was told that I could never run again. Question to anyone that may have a answer. Right now both sides hurts or I feel a discomfort when I walk 2 to 3 blocks. Is that normal or should I reframe from trying to jog at this time.

Thanks for the feedback.
