Hello Pak Dadang, Thank you for the question.
The complaint you are experiencing is a result / complication of your decision not to consult an orthopedic specialist when you have a fracture. Broken bones can heal optimally if bone fractures are returned to their original position and then retained / immobilized by the use of casts, splits, or the operation of mounting plates / pens / wires. If you are not looking for appropriate medical help, then complications that can occur are bone fused but not in its original position (malunion) or bone fractures are not fused at all (non-union). Both of these complications can cause abnormal bone shape (bent) and even impaired motion function (unable to grasp). In addition, when you have an injury for example due to an accident, in addition to causing fractures, this injury can also cause interference with the function of tendons (connective tissue that connects muscles to bones). Tendons function to help joint and bone movements. Injury to the tendon that has not been repaired can also cause complaints to grasp difficult. This condition may not be able to return to normal if you do not see a orthopedic specialist further. If you want the return of the finger motion function, the best step now is to consult with an orthopedic specialist. The doctor will examine your finger and take an x-ray to assess the condition of the bone. Depending on the current bone condition, the new doctor will determine the next treatment to restore the function of your fingers and hands.
Hopefully this information is useful.
