Need help understanding my knee mri results

My ortho is out of town until next week but I received my mri report and am curious as to what the next likely steps will be. I have had two prior surgeries on the other knee (lateral release and torn meniscus) and he said it was a matter of time before the other would need a lateral release.

Results:
1) manifestations of early lateral patellar friction syndrome. Subtle fibrillation of the patellar cartilage.
2) subtle mucinous degeneration of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus

Thanks for any opinions - I know they're not medical advice but appreciate them!
