In brief: ACL

Instability after acl reconstruction can be for a number of reasons.
Such as non healed meniscus repair, hardware failure, even simply lack of strength. I would see our orthopedist or seek a second opinion if your knee remains unstable despite surgery.

In brief: Check with surgeon.

Check with your surgeon.
Generally, if your having instability it is usually one of two things: Your ACL is not working properly, or, you may be having instability from a kneecap tracking problem.
