I dislocated my hip and tore part of my quads but had a closed reduction and no fracture, so not as traumatic as most of the examples here but I was surprised at how quick and complete the recovery was, especially compared to shoulder dislocations.
Most frustrating part (after the initial agony) was being on crutches and pooing with a straight leg with a brace on.
Managed to get a great physio through travel insurance which involved lots of standing on one leg on one of those stability cushion/wobble board things - progressing to deeper and deeper squats as time went on.
Probably not quite there yet but worth looking into once you're fully weight bearing and confident on the affected leg. Good luck, the first time you're back on your bike will feel like freedom!
