open chain knee extension pain

2.5months s/p ACL repair and unable to extend knee in open chain without severe pain, worse with SAQs vs. LAQs. No pain otherwise during ADLs, walking, other closed chain exercises such as squats. Ascending stairs slight discomfort and lack of control of eccentric contraction on the descend. Any advice on how to regain open chain movements without pain.
