We say "I haven't been able to do this ever since I have started going there" but can we say " After starting doing this I haven't been able to do this"
There is one more question we say "Having done that he was ubable to do that", "having done" usualy gets used for the past but can we say " Having done that I am unable to do that" or " Having done that I won't be abke to do that".
So what would be the correct formation?
So what would be the correct formation for "After starting doing" and what about the " Having done" formation, you haven't replied for this one.
He said he wouldn't use it, and I agree. If you want to use after starting, then the past tense is more natural.If you want to use the present perfect, use since I started.
With having done, you can use the present and the future, because a past action can have an effect now or in the future.
So, can we say "After starting running I was unable to walk properly / I am unable to walk properly" ?
If these expressions are correct, can you also tell me whether future tense be used with this formation.

"After starting to run, I was unable to walk properly."
"After starting to run, I am now unable to walk properly."
"After starting to run, I'm sure I won't be able to walk properly."
