See surgeon: Glad your ACL surgery was successful. If your ‘pinch’ is a feeling of pain and becoming more constant you should see your ORS for examination. May be nothing more than a bit of tendinitis or more significant ( scar tissue building up in knee—‘cyclops’ lesion) or related to previous meniscus work. Best to have it checked!
