Glad you're doing so well after your surgery. I was a runner way back. I switched to walking and biking several years ago because my knees were starting to bug me...probably the start of tts. I didn't have the surgery but am hoping to run again some day...I'd be happy with a light jog around the block. Until then I am going to have to live vicarously through folks like you...please keep us updated.
best wishes marie

Dave, I'm a runner age 53. I am 6 months post op and began running for about 12 min at 4.5 months. I don't have pain but still have lots of numbness. I sprint jog and also run slowly.....much much slower then I used to run. I had a progressive tumor which really hit me hard last Jan. 9th. I was in such good shape at that time. I hated not being able to run and the thought of a few weeks off hurt. But finally I had to accept that this is a aserious nerve problem. I'm hoping my nerves will continue to regrow and by next summer I will be able to rum much like I have my entire life.
