In brief: Yes, fairly normal

This is most likely from edema related to the surgery.
The edema and injury from the surgery to the area just below your quads can cause significant edema and actual short term structural changes leading to some discomfort. Give it about two weeks and discuss with your ortho if it does not improve. Hope that helps!

In brief: Yes.

It is fairly normal to feel thigh discomfort following any type of arthroscopic knee surgery.
the thigh muscle shuts down immediately after surgery and can give you that feeling. Physical therapy starts reversing that process.
