Fermur bones overlapped after accident. Metal rod inserted during operation. Numbness in groin area, temporary or permanent?

I broke my femur bone during a wake boarding accident in Fiji. I m back in Sydney now recovering from the operation. Before the operation my bones overlapped. I haven t yet seen the new xrays properly but I assume they are no longer overlapping and being supported by the metal rod the doctors inserted. They made 3 incisions.. 1 on my hip, 1 near my knee and 1 upper thigh. It s fine but for some reason my right groin area (from front to back) is numb. There s no sensation there at the moment. Please can you let me know if this is temporary or if this is something that could be permanent?

Hello there,
welcome to Healthcare magic forum,
This numb is due to the incision at the hip..... This must recover with in a couple of months.... if not consult your surgeon directly...... he is the best person to reason out...... Now icing/ brushing/ stroking techniques can be helpful in facilitating this recovery process.....
Thanks and wish you a better recovery as soon as possible...
