I'll take a shot, but remember I am no doc.  Don't forget to have him explain when you go for your post-op visit.

*severe chondromal troch - severe chondromalcia of the femoral troclea; cartilage in the groove at the end of the thigh bone is severely degenerated

*mod chondromal MFC- moderate chondromalicia medial femoral condyle; the cartilage around the medial (inner side) of the knee is degenerated

*fraying lat men - fraying lateral meniscus; the meniscus (cartilage) under the medial condyle (big round part at end of the thigh bone) is frayed.

Looks like you could be having some arithritis problems starting in the medial compartment of the knee.  Chances are good that when you tore the lateral meniscus the medial one got a bit tweeked as well.

Hope this helps and remember to ask your surgeon for sure.  His abbreviations may mean something else.

Glad to be of help.  I like the bike and am waiting for the weather to cooperate more so I can ride.
