I am 52 and 130 lbs. I have been running 2-3 times a week since 2006. I run between 5-26.2 miles at a time. I am healthy otherwise besides being on medication for high blood pressure.

Length of time may vary from Physician to Physician. In our practice we have our pts start walking immediately, 10 mins at least per hr then gradually increasing length of walk and pace. By 10 days to 2 weeks you should be up to up the pace to a job but it will be contingent upon your comfort level. Most patients have no problems and are running again in about 3-4 weeks.

That will depend on the treating phycian, but I tell my patients that they may resume 3 days post-procedure.

You should probably wait 3-4 days and then you can resume running provided you wear your compression stockings.

This varies between patients and physicians, but as a rule 1-2 weeks later
for shorter distance runs (3-5 mi).

You can resume running 5 to 7 days after the procedure depending on the amount of bruising and discomfort you may have.
