I was playing some pick up soccer with some friends

Patient : I was playing some pick up soccer with some friends and didn't have my shin guards, this of course was my first mistake. During play my friend stuck his leg out as I swung my leg for a shot. Both of our shins made full contact and we both went down in pain. We were both able to "walk it off" but I have since had some pain. I can feel a small hole in my shin where the bone should be and I have had pain since the accident. I'm curious as to what this could be and how long it would take to heal as summer is approaching?
