What views should be ordered?

TIA-I know this is presumptuous but I would like to suggest to my pcp what xray views to order. I sustained a high speed flight/fall/bounce/thud a year ago in a bus accident. I am in my 60's. I am having increasing disability. Pain in groin when pivoting, side-stepping, and with single leg wt bearing/flexing (getting out of shower.) Extremely tense tendon at times nearby. After accident I had small hematoma top front of thigh on the outer edge (so not the groin) of a line drawn straight up from the patella. I still feel a bulge at that location though no visual clues, and have deeper subtle pain there.   I don't have snapping or clicking but I hear 'internally' a dull thump from the socket when I shift off the leg. Prior to accident I could hold the raised legs position bilaterally for quite a while (always surprised the gyn drs when they would pull out the table extension.) Now I can only raise this leg 1 inch at best-opposite leg is as good as ever. It feels like the muscle in the upper leg gives out but the muscle closer to the knee kicks in so I don't fall when I first begin walking. I can no longer stand up from low toilets or chairs. (You cannot believe what you have to do to get out of such a predicament.) I purchased one of those walkers that fits over the toilet seat which works great but I don't exactly want to travel with it... When sitting in a chair I can also only raise that leg up 1 inch at best. I am aware the groin pain most likely relates to the labrum but I am not interested in MRI-just want to rule out fracture. I am terrified of the physical exam the pcp will feel compelled to do to 'elicit' the pain.
