You have some problem in your left hip.
I have seen your reports till the end of 2010 where a doctor from Hyderabad suggested total hip replacement for you.
Its almost 1 year and 8 months now. What were you doing? Are you continuing your education ?
How are you managing these days without mobility?
Can you weight bear in left leg now? Can you sit down in an Indian toilet? Please write with more details so we can help you.
