It looks like you have ignored the problem for long time. 10 years is too long period. You are just 28 and all findings of MRI are suggestive of damage to meniscus, and Knee joint which is usually seen after 50 years of age. You need to undergo Arthroscopy surgery. Meniscus should be repaired if it is repairable, though chances of repair are low as it is very old injury as per your history. Need to see MRI images to comment more.
