In brief: Get it reevaluated
Ligament tears that don't heal could mean either immobilization or the length of treatment was not enough, that there may be an associated fracture, or there is something preventing the ligament from healing.
A reevaluation and/or an MRI may help find the answer.

This is an incomplete medical history, as there are multiple different ligaments in the finger. This should be ideally evaluated by a Hand Surgeon with either Orthopedic or Plastic surgery training
