The injury, sustained in training for the forthcoming World Championships, is a reoccurrence of the break that ruled Lisburn-born Carson out of last summer's Olympic Games in London.
"I have been told that running may be a problem for me when I recover, and that I should prepare for the worst with regards my career," he said.
The 23-year-old was warming up on the vault, along with a Team GB member, when the latest injury occurred earlier this week in Lowestoft in England.
I am totally devasted. I feel like my world has stopped. Everything I dreamed of achieving as a seven-year-old gymnast has gone.
"Everything was going so well one minute and the next, I was lying on my back having jumped off a springboard. As I was twisting through the air, I knew my leg had gone," Carson said.
"It was a sickening sound."
The devastated athlete spent hours in hospital before being told that his career could be over.
Carson had only recently retained his number one status, having slipped in the rankings due to the injury he suffered last year.
His agent, Alex McGreevy from MG Sports Management, said the latest blow comes after weeks of buzzing about his form and fitness.
"His latest form and scoring has been the best of his career," he said.
"He would have been a genuine contender to medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next summer and certainly had realistic hopes of success at the Olympic Games in Rio.
"It's a terrible thing that has happened, but I have reminded him that he is an elite athlete and elite athletes are strong in character in when faced with the most difficult scenarios."
