I had it earlier this year. I had surgery for it in March. I also had cervical spine surgery in January. The post op pain for the cervical spine surgery was less than the knee. That's because you have tons of nerves in the knee. I had a lot pain for about 2 weeks and then it gradually improved. I could walk right after the surgery and now 7 months later I still have pain on occasion but nothing major.
The surgery itself is not that big of a deal. You'll have two tiny incisions. I was in and out of the OR in about an hour. If you need it get it done. If you don't the tear will only get worse. If I had to do it again I would.
