2002 Dodge Truck Door Hinge Problem

So, strong winds sprung my driver door open and now I cannot open it. I just had the door replaced due to a similar situation where the door hit a fence post while in reverse. However, I just dropped my full coverage and would like to know if there is a much cheaper fix than having to replace the door and front fender. My truck is a 2002 Dodge 2500 Cummins 3/4 ton - the older body style from the 1990s. I am hoping there is a way to bend the hinges or jar the door back so it will open.
