My wife was a very avid distance runner and was training for a Marathon when she was diagnosed. Later on she had to have one of these stents put in as tumor was starting pinch off her Ureter. By that time she had already more or less quit running because the Chemo had resulted in her not having enough stamina any more to be competitive in her age group. However - She continued to ride her horse right up until about a month before she passed away. So I am not sure about the rational for not being able to run as I would assume horseback riding would also be prohibited. She remained pretty active right up until she entered the hospital for the last time due to a blockage in her colon caused by a tumor that was very hard to image by CT scan. I suppose they are afraid that running might dislodge it.
