Hi you had sustained Fracture in hip and sacrum and still have pain in groin. I would like to know if you were operated and what was the nature of operation. In my opinion from your description , I think that probably sacrum has malunited ( united in different position) . The nerve - Sciatic nerve passes very close to sacrum and hip and it might have been damaged partially. I suggest get an X Ray pelvis including SI joints and both hips and NCV Studies for both legs. Start painkillers , Pregabalin and Spinal Extension exercises at present.
