I totally agree with this. An injury like yours will likely cause you to alter your mechanics and leave you at a higher risk for chronic injury.
I suffered a similar but probably less severe hip injury almost two years ago, and did not rehab it properly. I've spent the last two years trying to fix all the problems that were caused by not rehabbing properly.
This type of injury will force you to change your goals and the scope of your training. Look to the long-term if you wish to have a long, healthy, successful training career.
