    If the doctor reading the results of the ultrasound says there is a tear then I would bet there IS a tear. The doctor who will be doing the surgery is the only one who can tell you how many anchors will be required, how long it will all take to heal, is you will need physical therapy, or if you will have any physical limitations or how long you will be limited. No one online can give you any answers.

    I had a tear in my shoulder that was found w/ an MRI but luckily it had started to heal and I did not need surgery. I was not as lucky w/ the meniscus in my knee….also diagnosed w/ an MRI. I had to trust that the doctors involved w/ reading the scans and doing the surgery knew what they were doing.

    Good luck. Be patient.
