Coding a sequela

Okay, we have patient that is coming in for physical therapy post-op for a R ACL reconstruction. Patients C/O is post-op pain and weakness. Now my PT says use - S83.511S: Sprain of anterior cruciate ligament of right knee, sequela.

But, I don't think this is sequela because his ACL tear is not a direct injury from his surgery. Would it be S83.511D (subsequent enconter)?
