Patient : I slipped on ice 4 days ago and my leg went under my car and i banged my shin. i have a hole on my shin about the size of a dime that is very painful when touched at all, also at times it burns. it hurts to walk . is it normal to experience this and its just healing or could it be fractured? either way how long should it take before it feels better?
