Herod, mine was a full thickness tear, but still attached. The anaesthetic experience was similar, however the post op pain had me sitting on a lounge suite for three days, consuming two weeks supply of synthetic opiate pain killers. I wasn't told (didn't realise) the paracetamol / ibuprofen combination killed pain as well as synthetic opiates.
When I returned to the outpatient clinic for a new prescription, the nurse said to me "everyone knows you combine synthetic opiates with paracetamol and ibuprofen."
