Fractured Finger and it's still swollen after 3 weeks, questions...

The doctor said I jammed it soo hard that the tendon in the knuckled stretched and pulled a piece of the bone with it. I know multiple people on here have had this same injury and I would like to know if their swelling went down and how long did it take to go down. I currently have it in a splint and have had it in there for 3 weeks already. I have also been icing it daily and it the swelling just wont go down. Thanks.

A few years ago, a guy I know jammed his finger and the knuckle swelled up. He never went to a doctor, because he's kinda stupid that way, so I don't know exactly what the injury was. However, his knuckle stayed swollen for months before eventually going down.

I keep icing it and the swelling just wont go down. With finger exercises will the swelling eventually go down or just keep icing? Do injuries like these just heal with time? Any other tips or comments on the subject and thanks for your input Jane.
