Agreed with that. But ICE IT IMMEDIATELY, don't try to be all macho and go without ice because that's the best way to stop the swelling.

Don't know how serious it was, but you'll probably recover. Assuming no bones are broken, ofc. If they are, they may have to put you down.

Pit answer :there is a lesson to be learned here..... Kill the siblings before they injure you.....


real answer.... Doctors!!!!!!!!!!!

Also your nail is going to fall off most likely... and you should put some ice on it to keep the swelling down
#7
yeah...medical attention may be good. you might have broken it, or maybe damaged the nerves or something. I would get it checked. You probably will heal up alright eventually, though. People break fingers relatively often.

EDIT: Ice is your friend. Use it.
I have:
Acoustic B200H+B115 cab, Schecter Stiletto Custom 4, Rondo Fretless, Boss EQ-7.

Some men just want to watch the world burn. And they work at Behringer.

well, it's gonna hurt for a few good days I can tell you that, unless it's slightly fractured but I doubt that. I think the reason your other fingers are cold is because the swollen one has most of the blood rushing to it.

also your nail might fall off.

basically just keep an eye on it for he next few days and try to just play with a pick until it's back to health
#9
put it on ice!! ur probably going to lose the nail, but that'll grow back, what u should be more worried about is if u've broken it (try moving it and stuff). in any case ur gonna have to rest it for a long while so it can heal and then start over on building up some callouses.

see a doctor asap just in case!
#12
Bass mom says--ibuprofen and ice on for 15 minutes. And if the pain is not getting any better in the AM, see the doctor.
#13
Reminds me of the time Geezer Butler broke his hand punching a T.V. set when he was drunk. He went to some incompetent Japanese doctor that bandaged up his hand because Sabbath was playing a show the next day. Had to play bass with a partially broken hand for a month before doctors told him he would lose his hand if he didn't get proper medical attention.


Consider yourself lucky.
#14
What people have said is what you should do; Ice is your friend. Also, if your ring isn't too badly affected, play with that for now, and see a doctor in the morning. If there's any damage tommorrow that will carry on for awhile, stopping you from playing using your middle, take advantage of it, as much as it sucks; try walking with your index and ring. It'll be a little akward, but once your middle is good again, you'll be able to play okay with three.

so your idea of screaming is ridiculously low inaudible growling?
and its your fault, you know, for being a bassist.
#16
yea... chances are it's broken. One warning, I have a friend still recovering from breaking his middle finger on his right hand... he broke it more then 3 months ago, it still looks beat up, but at least he can play drums now. (Note: he plays professionally, so don't think he wasn't trying to play every step of the way)

Also worth noting, He saw a doctor within an hour, and they said if he had waited much longer, it could have caused permanent damage... so make sure you do it first thing in the mourning... in fact, stop reading this and go see a bloody DOCTOR!
#17
^ yeah right

merely a flesh wound


i slammed my hand in my car door 2 weeks ago and its fine now

chin up, soulja
#18
Well, it should heal in some days.

Happened to me once and healed the same night of that day, you should probably go to sleep now hehe.

Ice it and don't freak out if you wake up without a nail.

I've always been **** scared of hurting my hand or breaking an arm because of bass.
#20
ICE. FROZEN H2O/WATER.

Then go to a doc to let him check any damages inside.
I don't know what I'm doing, but I still do it anyway...


Just for the lulz.
#21
Isn't it common sense to see a doctor about these things? If I had a heart attack, I wouldn't check if I could still do as many push-ups as I did before I had a heart attack, and then post online about it.
#23
Stop being a pussy. Drink a fifth of cheap, Kentucky Whiskey (I recommend Evan Williams) every day until it stops hurting.

My brother was playing football (soccer for you yanks) with his friend. His friend got tackled hard and landed on his shoulder, his shoulder hurt and a week later it still hurt. He finally plucked up the courage to go to A&E, had an x ray and it turns out he broke his collar bone.

They're going to have to surgically remove the finger, you'll never be able to play bass again. Might as well get a new hobby that doesn't require a middle finger, like reading!

Lucky he wasnt playing real football, Might of broke him in half at the waist!

...Uh... "Fingure"? Really? "Fingure"? You hurt your "fingure"...?

...Just me? I'm the only one? Ok. Fine.

Whatever. My advice to add - don't play bass until it's reasonably healed. Sucks, I know, but you don't want to screw yourself more. Unless you have a show of course. Then play through the pain. Duh.

Pardon?

He's complaining about his BROTHER having smashed his finger in a door on a FORUM and making reference to blowing on it causing pain that makes him scream (again, on a forum). So, to make it a little clearer: I doubt he has access to Whiskey (most likely because of age), nor should he be drinking it without even finding out if there could be lasting damage.

Honestly, name calling and recommendations to drink alcohol... ether your making fun of him, or you never grew up... or both.

Seriously though, it doesn't even SOUND like 'fingure' what kind of inbred hunchbacked baby-eater are you?
