cut my thumb a month ago, should i see a doctor?
i cut my thumb a month ago while slicing a bagel (yeah my thumb was in the hole- we've since purchased a 'bagel guillotine' so it won't happen again), and it felt like a pretty deep wound to me(more than just cut skin pain, more like i had hit the bone) but it didn't LOOK bad, and the bleeding, tho pretty intense at first, stopped quickly enough, so i didn't feel like it was worth a doctor visit.
the surface wound sealed up within a week, but it's been a month and it still only bends half as far as it used to. it usually feels fine but when i try to open packages, bending my thumb and gripping strongly, it hurts and i have to use scissors or have someone help me instead.
it's getting annoying and i'm worried that it might need some kind of surgery to restore the full range of motion. or should i just be patient?
