Thanks for posting your query,

It seems to be soft tissue injury. Soft tissue injury over hip and pelvic area take more time to heal .
However it is best to rule out any bone injury after an X-ray.
I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the X-ray/MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance.
Avoid weight bearing on the foot till then and get some mild pain killers prescribed.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful
