Since you have not sent the report,it is very difficult for me to comment upon it.
However,I am quite sure that your problem can be managed because,you are very young and with a proper treatment from a proper professional doctor like an orthopedician can make the things completely all right for you.
There must be some big government hospital in or around your area,where you can visit the orthopedic department.
Your treatment involves...
Correct diagnosis
Proper medicines
Proper physiotherapy
Other supplementary medicines like VIT D and calcium.
Plan a visit to an orthopedic as early as possible.
Till you consult him start the following...
CALCIROL sachets 60,000 units once a week for 8 weeks,dissolved in one cup of milk in morning.After 8 weeks,take the XXXXXXX one in 15 days for 4 months and then take it once every month for 2 years.
Start taking a calcium supplement like SUPRACAL in dose of one grams a day.
I hope it helps.
Get back to me,if there is something else to be asked.
