Knee Popping after ACL repaired. Could it be a meniscus tear ?

I had my ACL repaired and now my knee always pops and sometimes it feels like it pops in and out of place. What could this be? Could it be a meniscus tear?

Good Day
It probably is just the artificial correction effect. Nothing to worry. Walk carefully. Don't head out to exert as in playing in outdoor games yet. Move around with someone beside you for a few weeks. Do not worry, you will get used to it.
