I'm going to be up at Horseshoe Meadows on June 5. If you are back on trail and need anything I can bring it up the hill to you, or even give you a lift down to Lone Pine.

If it's like my knee then you probably have damaged your meniscus. This is likely due to not strengthening it with exercises prior to starting the journey. But who knows. It may be a combination of carrying too much weight, age, and uneven ground. If this doesn't require surgery I would rest this knee for many weeks and build the strength up after it heals. Resuming the hike will damage the meniscus further and make the issue bigger. It will be interesting to see the results of the MRI.
