In brief: It depends!

First, were you able to jog before? If so, then you should be able to do so afterwards.
More importantly, this is a question that is best addressed by your surgeon, hopefully pre-operatively. S/he should address all your questions & concerns before the operation (given that it's not emergent). S/he can also go over your recovery & what to expect when. Regardless of what we say here, go see ur doc.
