Big John, this really isn't going to help you but ...

I removed two of my toe nails on accident. When I was a kid I was walking home from school. There was a big patch of ice on the path - a puddle had frozen over. In the ditch was a big pipe about as tall as I was. I picked it up held my hands on the top end and began jack-hammering into the ice. I decided to see how much ice I could break with my eyes closed.

I figured out exactly how much ice I could break that way >>>>> NONE. I smashed the pipe on my righ foot and popped my little toe and the next one over like they were grapes. Yes the nails were gone too. Lots of blood on the way home and to the hospital.

My toe nails grew back but it took a loooooong time :^)

I had all my toenails permanently removed over a year ago. If I'd been able to stay home and stay barefooted while they healed, I wouldn't have had a lot of pain after the first couple of days. But I went back to work after a week: I walk all eight hours on my job, and had to wear shoes. If I had it to do over again, I'd have the doctor fill out medical leave forms for three or four weeks. My doctor had insisted I'd be fine at work after a week, and he was oh, so wrong (and I have a high threshhold of pain, usually). Except for that, everything went fine. My toes do not get sore from lack of nails. In fact, sometimes I forget I lack toenails, because there's no difference in how they feel now.

Nail Removal

From Our Sponsors

All or part of your finger or toenail may need to be removed because of injury, nail infection, or abnormal nail growth. After the procedure, your finger or toe will be tightly wrapped in a special nonstick bandage to prevent bleeding.

* Keep your hand or foot elevated to reduce pain and swelling.
* Your doctor will tell you whether it is necessary to return to the hospital or the office to have your bandage changed or whether you can do it at home.
* Keep your bandage dry until after it is changed for the first time.
* After your bandage is changed for the first time, soak your hand or foot in warm water for 10 to 20 minutes 4 times a day to help reduce pain and swelling. If you wish, you may add Epsom salt to the water. After soaking your hand or foot, apply a clean, dry bandage. Change your bandage every time it gets wet or dirty.

Call Your Doctor If...

* You have increased pain, swelling, drainage or bleeding.
* You develop a temperature of greater than 101 degrees F (38.3 degrees C):-)

About a month ago someone had posted that they had theres removed and so did her brother or something like that It all started by someone wanting to get a remidity for some fungus growing on ther toe Some one said Tea Oil and everyone ele said use vicks vapor rub. I guess maybe if you just soaked it it would help!!!!!

years ago they removed my big toenail - then cut a groove down one side to narrow the new one. i had a bandaged foot for a couple weeks but no unusual pain. solved a pesky ingrown problem.

i would think your toes and fingers would toughen up after a period of time, and think on the bright side , could throw your trimmer away , give yo more time for other

Nope they never did, he was born that way. He could never put his hands in his pants pockets because it hurt so much.

He ended up and still is a big drug user, anything to get rid of the pain I guess?!

I know a person who just had their big toenail taken off, kept bleeding, the Dr. took a piece of the toe, sent away and notice came back that it was malignant, then had a cat-scan to see if the cancer had gone up to lymthnodes in groin. It hadn't but the DR. wants to take about 2/3rds of the big toe and bone off and then do check-ups about every 3 months. This person is now going to get a 2nd opinion. (Toe cancer was found in Bob Marley a raggee musician in 1977, he did nothing to get rid of it, he passed away from it in 1981)
