You : You could be having a reaction to whatever was put on the wound yesterday, but the first thing i would be concerned about is it becoming infected. Infection would cause swelling, and in the presence of a compression dressing, this would certainly increase your pain on top of the usual pain from an infection. If your doctor has office hours today, i would recommend you go there and wait, because he really must see you today. If he has no hours, call his office and let them know you're going to the er, preferably at the same hospital he or she is doing surgery today, so he or she can pop down to the er between cases and have a look. Good luck. Hope this helped. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Crush : Crush injuries are very devastating to tissue. The fracture is only half of it. The damage to the soft tissues (nerves, blood vessels, tendons and ligaments) can be significant and permanent. Without seeing you, i can't tell you when you'll be able to walk unassisted again. This is a question best asked your surgeon. Good luck! ...Read more

Unrelated: If you remember that the nerves in the skin run in all directions including across the area that is now your open wound. In addition, there is inflammation of healing (red, hot, swollen and tender) that may involve that nerve. Plus, the trauma may have cut or otherwise damaged that nerve. The good news is that skin nerves usually resolve and return to function depending on the injury severity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I got a deep cut on my finger using a knife a few weeks ago. The wound has closed up, but now I have a hard piece of scar tissue there. What can I do?
Depends: It will take 6 weeks for the scars to begin to soften with any incision, and daily massage will help. However, with a deep cut on the hand you want to make sure you have no functional or sensory changes/losses. If you are unsure, seek treatment from a surgeon who specializes in surgery of the hand. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
