What can cause knee pain after an ACL suregery and meniscal repair?

Many things. Knee pain and stiffness is common for months after acl surgery. The meniscus surgery generally is the faster part to recover from in 3-6 weeks. Remember that most high level athletes will not return to contact sports for 4-6 months minimum after acl surgery.
