Sounds seriously painful, bad luck. fwiw a riding buddy of mine had a similar fall on black ice a couple of years back. They tried the pinning route first - cue 9 months of pain/frustration/progress/regression. Eventually he opted for a full hip replacement - walking comfortably in a few weeks and back on club runs well before six months. Rode a couple of 200s with him last autumn and no long term probs at all. Hopefully you'll have a similar positive recovery, best of luck with the rehab.
