But, I have never been able to sit Indian Style since the accident. Now, when I work out and turn a certain way or going up steps I get a sharp pain in my inner thigh.

I would like to see x ray for conclusion. On the basis of your history it can be a muscle weakness or a knee or hip ligament injury. I would recommend you to show to another orthopedic surgeon. Otherwise you can post your x ray in this forum.
