Re: how long does it take a toenail to grow back?
Was the nail plate already separated from the nail bed when it was removed, or did the doctor surgically slice it from the nail bed? The procedure makes a huge difference in the end result. If some of the nail bed was removed, chances are that it will not grow in attached from that point forward. It will still grow though because it grows forward from under the proximal nail fold (cuticle area.)
