I have many peice's of bone chipped off my left leg on my shin. Their is like 4 dents and the bone peices move around and cause severe pain in my leg.And the other day someone kicked my leg so hard that it cuased the peices of bone in my leg to litteraly move around more.Now the peices of chipped bone can be felt almost pushing through the skin and they grind against the rest of the bone in my leg causing more peices of fragments to be chipped off.I tried ice and wrapping it and using crutches for a month its just getting worse.Can someone please give me some advice.

You already know the answers that you will receive ... go to the doctor. After 3 separate injuries to my left elbow, almost a year a part to the day, I ended up having my elbow looked at. Bone chips kept tearing the bursa sack causing swelling and pain. Even when I got the swelling subsided I was still in pain. After the operation it took some time to heal but eventually the arm has been as good as new.

If they x-ray your knee and find bone fragments they will have a simple operation to remove them. They will look at the knee as well and try to minimize anymore damage that can be cause which may mean sanding or filing down of the bone ... or something along that line. Just like my elbow, it looks slightly different then my right elbow, and in fact is an excellent weapon for elbow strikes. As well my left knee has two indents from the ACL patellar tendon surgery.

Get it looked at, the last thing you want is it to get worse. Who knows, those bone fragments could move into your body and cause more harm. When younger around 9 years old I had to have a piece of my knee removed as it got dislodged and could move up and down my leg which doctors felt the same way, problems could arise later.

Go now, don't pass go, don't collect $200, go directly to ... the doctor.

Dereck is right, in this case your first port of call must be your GP.
The second thing I must say is the hardest thing for any kind of athlete to hear - GET SOME REST!! The continuous training is not allowing your body the resources it needs to heal itself.
A few years back I broke my foot - the ligament tore away from a metatarsal bone taking a chip of bone with it. Gradually the bone chip was absorbed by some kind of specialist bloodcells (don't ask me for the biochemistry of it all) and it hasn't troubled me since.
May I humbly suggest no more training until you have this sorted out as you wouldn't want the injury to become permanent would you?

For gods sake, what advice would you give yourself in this situation? Do you really need to ask this question? Whats next 'the other day we were practicing Jo techniques and my partner gouged my eyeball out of my head. I popped it back in the socket and used an eyewash, but dang it I still cant see- do you think i need to go to a doctor?! '

I went to the doctor today for my knee and I also mentioned my leg to them so they checked it out.I got the worse news of my life I have to have a knee replacement and also they are going to remove the bone fragments in my leg but since their so close they are going to remove a 3 inch peice of bone and replace it with a peice of bone from my hip.
Because they are worried about more problems later on down the road .So I will be out of training for awhile but I wont let it get me down.After im healed enough I will get back to trianing and work even harder to get back to where I'am at now.

Hey, I know how you feel with being off and recovery from ACL surgery, the one where they take shin and knee bone and the petallar tendon in between. It has been 4+ months and I'm getting antsy so afterwards if you need to talk or support or just somebody to cheer you up, PM or e-mail me.
