After a hard impact (martial arts) my shin bone seems to have been chipped. The area is now all mushy, how long before it is replaced with hard bone?

Contusion: It is more likely that you have a hematoma (collection of blood after an injury). The shin area is very commonly involved since there is a small amount of flesh between the skin and the bone. It will resolve in a month or 2. If you think you have a bone chip get it x-rayed.

Bone (Definition)

This may not be a: Bone issue but a hematoma (blood under the skin) or fat and/ or muscle necrosis (dead tissue) that feels mushy-see a physician for evaluation to see what the diagnosis is before assuming it is a bone issue which may also be bruised or contused.

My dad have a pain on his left leg. I'm afraid if he had a tuberculosis bone? What are the syntoms?

Usually not first: Tuberculosis, or tb, usually will come with other symptoms, such as chronic fever, lung issues like chronic cough, and weight loss. You can have bone pain also, but there is usually an exposure history as well as a series of other symptoms that make you think of tb. If those are there, or there is reason for you to suspect tb, then you should have your dad evaluated immediately.

I have chipped the bone in my knee and it sticks out and hurts when I bend my leg?

Loose body: You may have a loose fragment in your knee if that is the case, when you move the chip can move and can cause your knee to lock up if this is what is going on you probably will need an arthroscopic procedure to get rid of the problem.

My son has adhd he kicked me in the leg about 10/11 days ago got a lump where bone is could it be chipped bruise has only just started going yellow?

Mechanism: This mechanism of injury is not likely to cause a chip in the bone. You did not mention whether this is still hurting you or not. If pain is still a problem you should be seen. Hope you are feeling better. Please do ask more questions about your son. Adhd is of course no reason to lash out at you. Non violent punishment is best!

Can your tibia bone feel unstable? What are the symptoms? I had knee surgery for ACL trim and mensicus trim and scar tissue under the patella. Help

Yes: Yes, you can definitely have some degree of instability in your knee/tibia, particularly if you have an "acl deficient" knee. I would not hesitate to discuss directly with your surgeon.

Could my leg pain be a symptom of my chronic Lyme? My bone feels like it will snap in one spot w/ pressure on it. I also used to be on depo provera (medroxyprogesterone)

Could my leg pain be a symptom of my chronic Lyme? My bone feels like it will snap in one spot w/ pressure on it. I also used to be on depo provera (medroxyprogesterone)

Thoughts: Your pain does not seem consistent with either chronic Lyme (although chronic Lyme has several non-specific possible presenting symptoms) nor Depo use. However, it sounds pretty extreme and you need a physical exam and some tests to rule out some bone problems that may be more common in young women.

Is bruises and wounds and wounds on leg means leg bone fracture or break? What symptoms should a broken or fractured leg bone be?

Have it x-rayed: Can't tell for sure without at least an x-ray or in some cases further radiographic studies. This needs to be evaluated. The wounds are also cause for concern, especially if deep or infected. Get medical attention immediately,

I am not athletic. When pressure is applied to my shins, I feel pain in the bone. What does this mean.

Start exercise.: That seems kind of normal even in an athletic person. There is nothing protecting the bone there. It's never too late to start a moderate exercise program - 30 minutes of aerobic exercise 3 days per week.
