Laxity: If your acl reconstruction is stretched you may again be experiencing instability and giving way in your knee. This is called laxity. You should have another MRI to assess the integrity of the acl and if torn again you may need surgery again. Don't forget to do your acl rehab exercises now.

Depends!: You are very young, but it is in your age group that we see the highest failure rates. As long as your knee is stable then i would not pursue any surgery. If the graft has torn, and your knee is unstable then i would consider having the acl reconstructed again.
