In brief: Needs evaluation

A serious injury like that can have complications - I would worry about a bone or joint infection if that original injury was severe enough.
Must have imaging tests to determine (at least an X-ray). The treatment could be prolonged, but I wouldn't delay since the fingers are very important for normal functioning. Something doesn't sound right, so please see a doc right away. Preferably an ID doc!
