    Hey has anyone here ever dealt with a dislocated finger?

    I dislocated my left ring finger almost month ago. It isn't getting better. my finger won't bend. It has been 3 and a half weeks now. I saw a specialist on Friday and he thinks my Volar plate is slipped under the joint or something like that. If he is right, I will need surgery. :( I go in for an MRI at the ungodly early time of 4:40 am on Monday.

    Just wondering if anyone here has dealt with dislocated fingers and/ or volar plate issues before.

    I've had minor dislocations before from grip fighting, and they still hurt now, you've done the right thing by seeing an expert quickly.

    I've only dislocated my little toe. But badly enough it tore between the toes and while I wisited the doctor to get stitches, I was told it was dislocated and broken. The doctor put it back in place and fixed it with a K-wire, though that was mostly for the fracture. It healed well. But the dislocation was the part I noticed the least and it was probably quite a different injury.

    I hope you can get it fixed quick!
