I am about 23 pounds over weight. Recent ACL surgery, in phase 4 - so I am moving around easily.
Worried about carb intake - sitting at 40-50 grams per day and I feel ok. No real lag, except later in the afternoon/early evening.

I am 6'0" about 220# so maybe similar build. I am careful about carbs unless I'm working out a lot. If you are just recovering from ACL surgery you are probably not fully mobile yet but I would definitely try to get some good exercise, something strength-based, and eat most of your carbs after workouts.
If I go super low carb for a long time (more than 2-3 months) that is not good for me, I start to get run down, my digestion suffers and I have constant cravings. But if I have too many carbs without enough exercise I quickly gain weight and have energy peaks and troughs and again my digestion suffers. The only thing I've found that works for me is serious workouts 3-4x per week and moderate carbs.
