For your leg pain try icing, do it for 20-30 minutes every 3 to 4 hours for 2 to 3 days, or until the pain is gone, together with reduced mileage or rest. Addressing the causes is likely to include ensuring that shoes have adequate cushioning and stability take anti-inflammatory painkillers. Do range-of-motion exercises. Go to physiotherapist to identify and treat issues in your legs or walking mechanics that may be causing pain. A therapist can also help ease the pain and guide your return to normal life. Best wishes.

Running is good. It needs a plain surface with much even surface. Running on roads might hurt your knees. Try to run in a park where there is a walkers lane. Make sure your shoes are well equipped for running. Or go to gym and do thread mill. These are the few options. Hope this helps you.Stay healthy stay fit.☺

Dear Rahul, After ACL reconstruction we usually keep patients on physiotherpy for 4-6 weeks, and allow gradual knee bending. So the common complaint is some amount of knee stiffness. You can only assess stability after 6-8 weeks.
