A:   Hi.
Thanks for your question and picture.

The picture does show a length but unless probed in person, it is impossible to say what else is cut.

Pain and loss of sensation in three fingers indicates that the nerve has been damaged.

Anyway, get in touch with a local Surgeon to have proper evaluation and further reconstruction done as necessary.
