Pain behind knee (hamstring tendon) after knee reconstruction

About one month ago I had reconstructive surgery on my knee, with my ACL reconstructed using a hamstring tendon autograft and also LCL/Prosteriolateral corner (PLC) reconstruction using an achilles tendon allograft.

Since then, my recovery has been relatively good, wearing a full-leg knee brace the whole time, with 2 more months of it. (Currently set at 60 degrees flexion and 20 degrees extension). Last night i was coming down the stairs, and i led with my left leg and planted it on the step, but it slipped down to the step below and landed fully straightened. I had a shooting pain behind my knee where I believed my hamstring tendon graft was taken from. The pain disappeared shortly afterwards however it returns slightly if I tense my hamstring. This pain has reduced since however. Later on in the night i heard/felt a click that came from the area of pain, although there was no pain.

I can walk normally still as I did before I landed awkwardly last night, but just curious incase I have torn or ruptured something again straight after surgery, or would this just be pain from where my hamstring tendon was taken from after surgery? As the area itself had been tender for a while afterwards.

Thankyou in advance for any help you may give me, I have a physio appointment at my University on saturday and i'll be sure to mention this if there is recurring pain or problems from that area of my knee.
