In brief: Depends

Ive seen people return to completely normal lives, others have chronic pain.
People who dont give up and keep pushing to get stronger, usually do better.

In brief: Variable

This one really depends on how bad was the fracture, where in the pelvis was the injury, and was this repaired surgically.
But in general this can be a bad injury and can lead to chronic pain, some degree of disability and potentially post traumatic arthritis if the fracture involved the hip joint (acetabulum).
