User :   I've been a jogger for nearly 45 years, but haven't jogged for nearly two years due to a bad right knee. First arthroscopy was good, but not second. Have had two courses of Supartz injections, but still can't run. QUESTION: Have knee replacements progressed enough that I could jog gently about 3 mi/day on asphalt? I am 73 years old.
