Absolutely: You probably do not want to play tackle for the nfl if your bones are somewhat more likely to break than the next person's, but you have a wide variety of sports to choose from. I love to swim; bicycling's another great low-impact sport, and your physician can help you weight the risk-benefit of medium-impact sports. The severity of paget's varies greatly. Good luck.
