Is snapping and popping in the joint normal after having cartilage removed under the kneecap? I just had arthroscopic knee surgery. Some are painful

In brief: The surgery was to-

-smooth the ragged portions of the cartilage under the patellar surface, but it can never be as good as new.
Give it time to settle down, in 6-8 weeks you will have a better idea as to if it helped or not.
