In brief: No , not really

Soreness of the whole body after acl surgery is unusal unless you either are having a systemic problem developing concomitanly or you have an allergic intolerance to medication.

In brief: Sometimes yes

Body (and muscle)pains are not due to acl repair , may result with any surgery due to muscle relaxants and medications given put the person to sleep , may lost couple of days.
It is due to sudden movement of fluids and electrolytes in and body cells, will recover completely.
