Acl Surgery Recovery

Hi I'm a 16 year old male and play quite a few sports. About a month and a half ago I had ACL replacement surgery for a basketball injury. Yesterday I played in a basketball game. It was just a pick up game and I didn't run or anything. Just kinda hobbled and hopped on my good leg. I'm left handed so I go off my right leg which is my good one. However today my left knee is pretty sore and weak. I know I didn't re-injure it and I'm not going to play anymore but I just had a general question to ask here because I'm not going to be at pt for another week to ask them. Do doctors don't want us playing sports after surgery because of an increased risk of tearing it again or is there something else they are worried about. Any answer would be great. Again I'm fine just sore from exerting it.
Thanks, Aubrey.

If you truly had and ACL reconstruction you are not sport ready until at least 6-8months post op.  You should be under the guidance of your physician and physical therapist for all rehabiltation progression.  Best in health, JAG
