In : In all likelihood you do. The digital nerves run up the sides of the fingers and are closer to the skin than the digital arteries. So if you cut an artery you would have had to cut the nerve. My guess from your description is that the injury is on the side of the index finger next to the long finger or maybe in the webspace between the fingers. Nerve repairs have the best results if they are done within 3 weeks of the injury. If you see a hand surgeon, he/she can easily diagnose whether you have cut a nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
