In 04, I had a labral tear in my right hip from a car accident. I was walking in pain for about two years until I had surgery to repair it and then had about six months of major recovery (crutches, cane, PT).
It is a different labrum, of course, but there may be some parallel in recovery issues.
I wish I could say that the pain went away, but it did not. It is certainly better than before the surgery, or the year after, but my right hip still causes me pain. Some days, especially when I don't sit or walk much, it is o.k. and mild enough to not be on my mind. But when I have to sit for a while (1+hr), walk too much, or take too many stairs, the pain can get bad enough that I need to take something.
I've found that surgeons tend to underestimate the recovery time for surgery and since you're just a few months out, there will likely be another four months until you'll have a clear sense whether you will have long term pain. PM doctors may see your pain as temporary and may or may not treat you on that basis.
