Has anyone had experience with a floating bone chip in the knee. Long story short, my son suffered a bone bruise (subchondral edema) which aggravated into a fully detached bone chip between the top of the tibia and the femur, confirmed by x-ray and MRI, along with a hyper-extended knee. No meniscus nor ligament damage (thankfully) but it is causing him a lot of pain at the moment. We haven't seen the doctor yet, because this is all taking place in Europe right now, but checking to see if anyone has experienced this injury.


I am guessing that it will require that the chip be removed surgically as it just a huge irritant in the knee joint right now, and before it does damage the meniscal surfaces.
