Re: discolored toe
I have two discolored toenails on my left foot where the nail was injured and does not grow out. I'd like to have it removed in hopes that a new nail would grow in. The 2nd and middle toes were severly dislocated and eventually I developed a extreme bunion.
Last July I had surgery where the 2 toes were straightened and a bunionectomy. Now the toes are still straight BUT have shrunk up and the big toe is still crooked and the doctor said it could come back. As a result of the toes being shrunk up, I still have a callous and unless I keep it cut down and rubbed down, it hurts, although it's not as big as as before the surgery.
The doctor wants me to tape it down, but what is the purpose of taping it down, wasn't the surgery suppose to have taken care of that? I am somewhat frustrated by it and wonder now if I should have chosen a different poditrist.
