Limping in a child could be because of various reasons .As he was diagnosed with Tranient synovitis earlier there is a possibilty of it recurring .However i would still recommend you to get him examined again to rule out other causes like arthritis,infections,tumors etc.Remember ,however painful it might be for you it is equally very challenging for a docter to decipher what it could be so one will have to be patient and get him investigated again.
Take Care.
