ACL pain after 6 years

Question: ACL pain after 6 years

I had my ACL repaired 6 years ago with wonderful results. Several weeks ago I experienced very severe pain below my kneecap; I went to the doc who said a little scar tissue had pulled away and just give it some time and it would be fine. Every now and then I experience an ache deep inside my knee that reminds me of when I was recovering from surgery. My question is: if some scar tissue pulled away, does that now mean my ACL is in danger of tearing again? Thanks!
