At my 7 month post ACL surgery check up with the doctor he assured me that it was normal to feel the clicking in the knee when straightening out, owing it swollen tissue under the kneecap. As swelling reduced, the two clicks that I was experiencing after the 6 month mark gradually became one click. My inner hamstring still gets sore when I'm in the gym, probably as a result of stretching and lifting weights. The main takeaway for me was that according to my surgeon I'm still on track, and his advice was to disregard what is commonly found on websites like Web MD or on ESPN where professional athletes return to competitive sports in under a year. I'm continuing to rehab regularly, and can't wait to feel normal again.
