I broke may finger!...

Maby it'll sound a bit stupid, but i broke my left pinky, and except the fact I can't play for 3 weeks, will it influence the functioning of my finger afterwards? I never broke nothing in my body and suddenly this!

If you let your finger heal properly your finger functioning won't be affected much
For proper healing you need lot of rest, especially at night, you need a healthy diet lot of minerals, especially calcium, magnesium, zinc and vitamins especially D, C, and folic acid and avoid junk foods
You need lot of water and oxygen and relax consciously the arm in which there the hand with the broken finger
Don't move and don't rush to the keyboard after it is supposedly healed, wait some days and play caution
How did you break it? Sport ?

I belonged to a varsity soccer team for 4 years.(long time ago...
I was a goal keeper and I had my right pinky and thumb, then left pinky broken.

Still I can play the piano.

You don't have to worried too much unless it is very serious...

Hope your pinky would be recovered soon properly :D

I broke the bone in my hand the connects to the pinky about 10 years ago. The bone healed but did not heal straight, and it looks like I don't have a knuckle next to my pinky. It hasn't troubled me yet, but I am expecting trouble in my later years - whether trouble will come or not, time will only tell.

Just don't rush back to the piano too quickly and if you feel any pain - stop for a week and try again. Take this advice with a pinch of salt, because I'm not medically qualified! Presence of pain is usually a good indicator of when to play or not to play.
