After I had ACL surgery I started to get popping and clicking noises within my knee whuch probably happenend after about 12 weeks and really worried me thinking I had retorn my ACL but after a visit to the OS he reassured me that it was not uncommon and it was just some loose strands from the new ACL. Unfortunatley I had torn a bit of meniscus and went back for a scope where he removed a part of the medial meniscus and cured the clicking of the new ACL. So I would not worry to much but see your OS if it bothers you.

i was told the same thing.Afte i fell month after the surgery on my knee i think i started hearing the popping sound.Made it was there before but i didnt just paid attention to it.But doctor told to me that it was normal and it would go away after for a while.I cant tell why it is normal, but it is, so i think theres no need to worry.The clicking mostly appears,when i am lieing and bending my knee stright forward,then it clicks.Its said because then the knee like has to train or so much more than then when you are standing.But i am no doctor.
