I broke my finger tip at work. Broke the bone right in the middle of the fingertip and the first knuckle. Doctor put a pin in it but didn't splint or cast it. After two week checkup it looked like it shifted, by looking at x-ray. Two weeks later he took the pin out and said he was happy how it's healing but it certainly doesn't feel very stable and it's been five weeks. I can't understand why he would not splint my finger after pinning it (this is my right ring finger). I'm afraid it's going to break again very easily.
