Try not to be scared.  I had a similiar procedure done in 2006 and the recovery from the tear repair was pretty quick. I had pain for the first week.  I was weight bearing as tolerated, had crutches for about two weeks, and was able to go back to work in about 3.

Take care and good luck with your surgery,
