Hand nerve damage temporary?

About 6-8 months ago, I was hit in the back of my right hand with a large sharp rock, the cut wasn't too deep and it was in the dead center of the back of my hand. (Right near the tendent for the middle finger) at the time my pinkey finger and a section inbetween my ring and middle finger went numb, that lasted about a week or so. Anyways it is 8 months now and the hand is mostly recovered, however the scar from the cut still makes my finger feel tingly when touched. It also occasionally creates a "funny-bone-like" feeling rarely in my middle finger. If I press on it or rub it, it becomes numb.

My question is does anyone know anything about this, it is obviously minor nerve damage, I am wondering if it is permenant or will it go away in all due time and become back to normal?
