Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

After skin grafting, it usually heals within one month and does not take too long. If you are having pain then it won't be because of grafting.

We need to examine you if we could find any other problem. If there is any nerve impingement then also fingers do pain, then at that time, it's better to release the finger under local anesthesia then only all your problems do get solved.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
