MRI left knee

Had arthroscopy sugery left knee Aug.2012.Still in pain up and down stairs and unable to squat down. pain after walking or standing for more than 30 mins. New MRI report,  tell me what this means where i can understand it!
Abnormal signal involves body of posterior horh of medial meniscus and body of posterior horn of lateral meniscus.There is suspected horizontal tear on the undersurface of the posterior horn of medial meniscus and small oblique inferior surface tear on the posterior horn of lateral meniscus. However,specificity of these findings for meniscal tear is lowered in the setting of previonus menical sugery. Therefore, arthroscopy may be necessary for futher evaluation if there is strong clinical suspicion of recurrent meniscal tear.The lateral meniscus has discoid configuration.

You have been operated on, which makes MRI much more difficult to interpret. The radiologist is suggesting exploratory surgery
