If you have a detailed exercise plan prescribed by Physio for post op rehab do it properly for few weeks.
Otherwisr consult a Physiotherapy specialized in ACL rehab
Examination before starting any exercise program is a wise choice.
Knee exercises - static quadriceps : lie flat on back and press your knee. You can use pillow and knee and press.
Lie flat and slowly flod your knee.
In sitting position : lift your leg up
You can search these exercises through Internet - static and dynamic quadriceps or isometric and isotonic exercises of knee.
Static cycle : cycling for 15 mins in 2 sessions daily.
Make it tight slowly after every week. This strengthens your muscle a lot.
Slowly practice stair climbing - few weeks after strengthening muscles.
Use ice packs for pain relief 3 to 4 times in a day ( 10 - 15 mins each time)
