My pinky seroiusly got smashed last September and it has given me fits for 6 months now. I lost the first knuckle and the bone under the fingernail. The doctor sewed it back. But it is still so painful that it interferes with my whole well being.
Has anyone got any suggestions. As to whether I should have it removed or to keep trying to live with this pain.
