In brief: See a Therapist

There are a number of exercises to do after ACL reconstruction.
It is very important, however, to implement a program in a structured fashion. Doing the wrong exercises at the wrong time can endanger the repair. Many of theses exercises can be part of a home program but you must follow a protocol. Talk to your surgeon-- he should provide this for you after, or even before, surgery.
