This has me concerned. Best thing to do is put the marathon into the future and focus on reaching the intermediate steps -5K, 10K, 15K, 20K/half marathon.
By then, you should know if your spine and hips are holding up.

The training to get through a half mara. will develop the proper base for marathon training.

First goal is to work up to running every day or combine cross training and running to minimize stress on your body.

Once you can do 2-3 miles a day(or equivalent effort/time cross training), you can start increasing the distance of one of your runs mid-week and weekend(ex:Weds and Sat.)

Keep in touch here with your progress, we'll take this one step at a time.
