Yeah, it's pretty much normal. My knee clicked and crunched after my PKR and it drove me nuts. It will eventually go away when your muscles get stronger. I've had 7 knee surgeries and that has happened after every one of them but it subsided after time. I'm four months post-op and the clicking has finally gone away.
