I nabbed my index finger with the table saw last winter. It's healed up pretty well, but the one side of that finger will probably always feel a slight pain. It didn't help that just as it began to really heal I smacked it with a mallet good and hard which left what I believe is a permanent dent in the nail. All I could do then was cuss a lot and wait for the pain to stop.
Glad you were able to keep your thumb. Being thumbless would blow..
I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
