Swollen Knuckle

Back in September I jammed and broke my right ring finger playing football. I went to the doctor, he said it was broken and just to tape it up. Well, it has been several months since and I have full range of motion in my finger and no pain. The only problem I have is the knuckle is still swollen. How long will the swelling last or should it be gone by now?

Re: Swollen Knuckle

If it is swelling it should be gone in a year at most. If the "swelling" is still persisting may not be swelling. It could be a broken piece of cardilage and that will take a while for the body to absorb. Maybe go back to the doctor and see what he says.
