I did the same thing to my finger today. I got the middle finger caught in a lift machine a work. It smashed the finger so hard that the nail popped out of the fold on the knuckle side, but the nail is still attached to the nail base, just like what happened your son.
Now I am an adult, and this is traumatizing for me, so I can only imagine what your son went through, and what you must of gone through watching him.
I don't have health insurance at work, so I must ride this one out.
My question is, did your son's fingernail grow back ok? How long did it take?
I noticed that some Doctors want to put the nail 'back' under the 'fold', to let it heal. Your Doctor did not do this to your son, so I am particularly curious as to your son's outcome.
I am just as terrified as you were that the nail may never grow back, or grow back deformed.
