>>682838250 It's a painless procedure and worth it. U get a few needles in your toes to numb them but that's not sore either. The pain afterwards is a bit extreme but in the long term will be well worth it
>>682838083 Had it done twice. I think I was off my feet/heel-walking for a day or two, then the pain wore off. You get a really weird sensation when you can finally use your big toe again, but oh man.. You made a good choice. Cutting those out usually fixes the problem and you'll be amazed at how easy it is to walk around now. I was so relieved when I did it. The second surgery was on my other toe btw not a repeat.
>>682838083 I had dual ingrown toenails for about 5 years, over 7 surgeries, each time I was off my feet for about 2-3 days, but I soaked my feet for about a week each time. Hope yours heal after the first time not the 8th. Pic is my foot.
>>682838083 I had one so bad it literally grew through the other side of my toe. I cut it at the base and pulled it through the pus pocket that formed in the tip of my toe. It was infected for months leading up to this. It was extremely inflammed and had bloody pus oozing around the area. It smelled like fish food oddly enough. The pus pockets would form every now and then. I would just cut the skin and drain it until it eventually grew through it.
>>682845741 Well I had just soaked it in that picture, but it got so bad because I had already had 6 or 7 surgeries so I was fed up with them. Keep your foot clean and what not, its unlikely it will get as bad as mine. Though, its possible.
>>682845741 Depends on how you cut your nail and also if you keep your nail cutter clean which alot of people dont It is recommended to never cut the sides of the nail cause if you do the nail will start to grow to the sides which will cause pain.
yeah had it at both big toes, went to a feet specialist to get an "emmert plastic". it was pretty fast and painless, was able to walk normally a few days later. Definetly worth it, had that shit 2 years
>>682838083 Last one I couldn't really walk for about 4 days, 2 weeks before able to run etc. Happened 4 or 5 times now, keeps growing back. Last time a fucking surgeon did it (didn't trust gen practitioner anymore) and it still grows back. Its not as permanent as they want you to believe. The cut bit does grow back perpendicular the the rest though, I've got 2 sections of nail on both toes now. So thats a bonus it won't grow in as fast. But I really don't get how they can fuck this up 5 times over, how hard can it be to mutilate the nailbeds so it doesn't grow a fucking nail anymore. I'm terrified of needles so I really hate the procedure.
You can go back to work monday, depending on what you do. Perhaps a crutch if you can't put weight on it by then.
