Why do I still have pain from a pelvic fracture after 7 months?

The doctor says the fracture is healed yet I still have pain in that area when walking or when I try to run. It feels like a tearing pain, like something is separating or ripping apart. I am so frustrated I don't know what to do. I had an MRI 2 weeks ago but I can't decipher the results from the doctor:

"Here is the official mri report:
IMPRESSION:
1. Healing fracture of the left inferior pubic ramus. A clear
underlying bone lesion is not identified. Mild marrow edema within
the anterior aspect of the left inferior pubic ramus near the pubic
symphysis, which may represent stress reaction.
2. Mild edema adjacent to the greater trochanters bilaterally may
indicate mild inflammation."

I am tired of being in pain. I just want to know when will I can expect to heal or if there is anything I can do to help this. I'm 29 and overall very healthy and an I'm an avid runner; I don't have other underlying health problems. Doctors suspected domestic violence as cause of the fracture but they don't know how it happened.
