It should be more than possible. Rehab, rehab, and follow the doctor and physical therapist suggestions for when to start rengaging in sport activities. Heck, I have been back on a board after 4-5 month from my surgery date but that was with just the ACL and on my other knee which was ACL and minscus within six months. With you having some much damage it is more likely that it will take longer and require much more time rehabing. It can be done. Good Luck and best wishes.

P.S. Look-up Willis McGahee of the Denver Broncos if you need some inspiration for coming back from a catastrophic knee injury.
