Have screws inserted on ring finger and there is bone growth. Is this normal? Worrisome

Hi, I have screws inserted on my ring finger and there is a bone growth on the finger now next to the pinky. Is this normal? I am afraid this bone growth will limit me from getting back to the normal functions of my right hand which is writing, lifting objects, playing ball, etc. My doctor was hinting of a second surgery that will scraoe this bone growth? I dont want to go to surgery again.
