His situation will be monitored and a decision will be taken on whether a surgery is required to treat his sports hernia.
The senior pacer stayed away from blaming the NCA for not being able to detect his injury.
He is set to miss India's next set of assignments which includes the tour of New Zealand.
Team India is set to play against Sri Lanka in three T20Is, starting January 5.
The side will then take on Australia in a three-match ODI series.
Bhuvi isn't thinking about a return at the moment. "World T20 is still good nine months away. I am not thinking about that. The first thing is getting fit and I don't know when I will get fit," Bhuvneshwar told PTI in an exclusive interview.
However, the injury went undetected.
Bhuvi, who was in severe pain, was declared fit for play.
He featured in all the three games and wasn't at his best and claimed just two wickets.
Bhuvi said the NCA must have tried its best but he doesn't know where it went wrong.
"NCA must have tried their best but I don't know what went wrong and why they couldn't diagnose. Still I am not the right person to comment on that as it might say something else and BCCI will come up with something else," said Bhuvi.
Bhuvi could require a possible surgery. At the moment, he is waiting for the doctor's appointment.
"There is no surety of surgery, but generally, the standard procedure in case of sports hernia is surgery. But we still need to take an appointment and I am not sure where it's going to be. But we are trying to get it as soon as possible."
Bhuvi said he wants to be back at his best but isn't sure what the treatment will be like.
"I want to be back at my best but as I said I don't know what will be the treatment like. So whatever the doctor says will go with that thing only," he said.
His possible return could be during the IPL 2020 season.
