Sore finger that was operated on one year ago

Patient

Q: A year ago i broke my finger. i needed 2 screws to hold the finger in place. i now have problems with that finger, such as when i bend it it jars in one place and when i force it it will sometime click. i have been back to see the doctors at the hospital when it first started as it was very painful for me but they could not find anything wrong, i am not in much pain when it now happens, but it feels like it is happenening more and more often. can you tell me what i should do. the finger was on my left hand, ring finger. broke between the palm knuckle and the first knuckle. thanks
