Dear Friend
Popping sound after ACLR may have 2-3 causes
1. Ligament impinging to the roof of notch.
2. from patelo-femoral joint
3. from meniscus tear left untreated which is very rare & painful.
So just follow rehab prigramme, built up quads & hamstrings & revieve after 2 months.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum. The popping noise you hear is not at all serious. most likely it is due to osteoarthritic changes taking place in your knee joint. Physiotherapy will help. No need of any medicines if there is no pain.
