Hi , I recently had my ACL surgery in my right leg . It’s been 7 weeks now and I have started walking . While doing so I try to stretch/straighten my operated leg. I heard a bug popping/snapping sound in my knee (like something moved in between my knee) . No swelling no pain no imbalance nothing . Just this popping/snapping sound now and then when I try to stretch my leg while walking . Anything to worry about or is this normal .

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its normal. You should not be much concerned about it.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
