If you cut your finger down to the nerve, how long do you think it will take to heal?


I cut my finger on a knife at an angle. It sliced a ways in and looked deep. It was bleeding really good for awhile. It feels like I hit the nerve in my finger. How long do you think it might take to heal with a cut that deep?

    See my doctor said they do?

    Is he blowing smoke?

    I cut my hand with a bandsaw below my little finger, and it nicked the bone, and they said it nicked the tendon. I have numbness in the outside of my finger. feels like wood. will it go away.

    the doc said he could sew the nerve, but there is no need as it will heal on it's own. It has been about 1 month now.

    Sometimes I get a jabbing feeling like a needle in the end of my finger.

    just a second or two. does it mean its healing?

    The ER doctor told me it may never return. (feeling) I can move my finger pretty good. still can't close my fist all the way. If the guy I was working with had and mechanical know how, I would have let him cut the post. Maybe l should have let him.
