Just after some advice...
Hurt my shin checking a kick in January, got a big painful lump come up, ice and rested it for a bit and it got better(ish). Had a fight coming up so i took it easy in terms of full contact and the shin was ok. Then on fight night got my shin kicked to pieces (as would expect) this was in mid February.
Now with it being near the end of March, its still not better, its painful to touch and on the occasions i try and throw a kick and it lands on that spot (which is inevitable) it causes instant severe pain and a large lump :(
so....what do you think i've done??? :(
sounds like you chipped a bone in your shin, i had this at the bottom of my shin it takes long to heal and for the lump to disappear just go easy on your shin at training. you might wanna go doctor cuz i dont remember it bein severely painful for much longer then a week
thanks klinch, it still hurts to touch :( , i didn't say but it actually still has the visible egg shape too!

what do they do about a chipped bone then ?? :confused:
Hey man, sorry to hear your injured. It sounds like you have some soft tissue damage mate, as previously mentioned you may have damaged your bone also. The main thing is to control the irration factor. If you avoid doing anything on it (which is initially good) but then when its better go straight back into something heavy without preparation then it will justflare up again. You need to get into a good routine of using ice, anti inflammatories and reduction in impact on it. Then once you have controlled it build up activity on it slowly. You could also get a deep tissue massage to try and breakdown any scar tissue but again if you do you will need to take a bit of time to rest after that. If you can find a good sports therapist that would be advisable. Anyway I hope that helps and you make a speedy recovery.
