And for what it's worth the pain is mainly localized right where my leg creases at the hip at the top, a little to the right, somewhere here.
I wish you well, of course I also hope that it isn't as serious as that. If you work towards having enough internal and external rotation without twisting (side-side or up-down) to compensate at the knee or hip, squatting should not be as big an issue. One of those common denominators in flexibility. Of course many factors impact IR/ER. Best of luck. If you plan on sitting back to squat, you might want to consider moving the bar a little lower to help reduce the increased hip torque.
