    Stabbed Myself with a Screwdriver

    Between my right index and middle finger just above the knuckle. Bled profusely. When it stopped I went to an emergency care facility where I received a Tdap vaccine, x-ray and stitch. The NP said the x-ray looked fine, no broken or chipped bone and to follow up with my PCP in a week to have the stitch removed. Also to pack it with ice, 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off for several hours every day until the swelling abated. This was almost a week ago. Although the swelling is less, it hasn't gone completely away and moving my middle finger is extremely painful. If I hold out my hand the middle finger is contracted down and to the left. When can I expect the pain and contracture to resolve?
