My husband cut off the tip of his finger 2 days ago. It was sewn back on in the ER but since then the pain is getting worse and worse. Is this normal?

In brief: Possible infection

Worsening of pain instead of decreasing is a sign of infection setting in so see your primary care doctor right away, and keep the hand elevated above his heart which will help reduce the pain and swelling from all causes!
