Will my high school son ever be the same for sports playing?

During a soccer game, my son hurt his knee very badly and needed surgery. He is recovering now with the help of a physical therapist. I am wondering-- will he ever really be able to play sports again? I see his limp and sense his pain and discomfort.

Have you discussed this with orthopedics? They would be a better judge of the injury and how much progress he has made. Right after surgery a limp and leg weakness is common. Several athletes recover completely.
