I've never had a really serious injury (knock on wood) so I can't say that I know the mindset that goes into coming back from such a thing.
For general advice I would say to relax and let it fester. I find that jumping right back in after a small injury isn't always the best way to go. Sometimes taking a while off, even several months is a good thing because you realize how much you miss it. Not having that in your life puts into perspective how important it is.
Conversely, maybe it's not what you thought it was. Maybe there is the chance that it doesn't mean as much to you as it used to. Taking some time off will let you know this as well. If the fire just doesn't come back, it may be a sign.
I have always found that time off is a good thing. I am just now getting back into a new gym after a nearly 3 month layoff. I suck, have lost a few steps, and I hurt all over. But I wouldn't change it for anything.
Give it time, come to peace with whatever you are feeling, and be honest with yourself about what it is that you are feeling. Is it a lack of desire? A fear that you won't be the same coming back? Maybe the possibility of injuring yourself again. Or is it maybe just a good reason to not do something that wasn't in your heart? Or it could just be that you're being lazy and need to kick yourself in the butt.
Whatever it is, give it a few days, a few weeks and ponder it over. Be honest about your feelings and try to come to terms with them. Once you've made peace with yourself it will be much easier to live with whatever decision you make.
Good luck buddy, and I hope you are happy no matter what you decide.
