Arthritis - Hip

I've just found out I've got hip arthritis. I'm due an appointment to an orthopedic doctor at some point.. but wondering where that leaves me running wise.

I first had the pain over 2 years ago when I was training up for a marathon - and its never gone away - so I haven't done that much running the past 2 years. I'm not sure if I should call it a day, or carry on and and try to manage things.

I'm early 50s - so I'd like to think I had some years left in me! But not sure if I should be aiming now for marathons, or scaling back shorter distances and enjoying what I can. I don't really want to cause any long-term damage.

I've seen other threads on here about it, but I know advice and practice changes over time, and keen to hear of others experiences. Thanks
