Eardrum problem

I had earpain in my left ear few days back. I went to a ENT doctor , he did endoscopy and showed some blackish scar in my eardrum which he concluded as traumatic rupture and advised tympanoplasty. Next day I went to another doctor for second opinion , he went for tympanometry and it was normal. He said that eardrum is normal and probably it's appearance is different from usual. Now I am really confused, please guide. I don't have any pain or hearing loss.

When you have no symptoms and your tympanometry was normal you need not do anything.

Your second doctor sensibly did an impedance audiometry(tympanometry) to confirm the diagnosis thereby avoiding an unnecessary surgery!
