The most important concern is circulation. An elbow dislocation disrupts a lot of ligaments around the elbow. However, there are major blood vessels that cross the elbow, too, which can be pinched, bruised, or partially torn (called an "intimal tear" for the inner lining of the vessel), causing decreased blood flow to the hand. There are a lot of criss-crossing vessels (collateral circulation) to supplement bloodflow, so major injuries may not be obvious.
While some swelling and bruising are expected after an injury like this, your hand should have normal feeling and be warm like the other hand. If you check your pulses at each wrist, they should feel about the same. The swelling should go down with elevation.
I assume you mean it has been a week since your injury. While a vascular injury is less likely to show up at this point, clots can still happen.
If you have any signs of poor circulation, go to the nearest emergency room! Otherwise, call your physician to be seen today. ...Read more

I've dislocated my left pinkie 3 times in 6 months. I see a hand specialist on friday. What can be done to make it stop dislocating?
If you are dislocation your finger joints that often you may be very loose jointed.
If it occurs during activity you can buddy tape your pinky to your ring finger, so they move in unison. Buy some 1/4 inch tape and wrap gently above and below the joint involved.
I strongly do suggest that you see a hand surgeon. ...Read more
No. It is probably the other way around. If you injure a joint, the joint reacts by producing fluid. A fluid-filled joint might be more vulnerable (as in rheumatoid arthritis) but it is not the fluid that causes the dislocation.
You have to tear a lot of supporting ligaments to produce a dislocation. ...Read more
Yes: It is possible to have hand pain following a dislocated shoulder. There are a group of nerves that run near the shoulder that supply the arm and hand and they can be stretched when a shoulder dislocation occurs. It is also possible that in the same injury in which the shoulder was injured, the hand was injured as well. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
