There : There are a number of structures that can be cut in this area, including the skin, extensor tendon, lateral bands, saggital bands, lumbrical tendon, interosseous tendon, flexor tendon, and collateral ligaments, as well as the digital nerves. A hand surgeon can evaluate each of these structures to determine if there is a functional injury. Nerve lacerations are often best repaired soon after an injury--usually within 1-2 weeks. They can be repaired later, but then are more likely to require something to bridge the gap, such as a synthetic nerve tube. Tendon lacerations are also best repaired quickly.

You may have partially cut a branch or the nerve itself. It will most likely improve in time. Nerves grow about 1mm a day so it may take a month or two. ...Read more
