6 days ago my front door slammed extreemly hard and trapped by toe within it. I was in excruciating pain, when I managed to take by boot and sock off my toenail on my big toe had ripped up at the root, however, leaving the nail still attached at the free edge. I went straight to A & E and found out i had a fractured toe, burst nail bed and had ripped my toenail off. I had to have a 'Nail bed repair' to fix the problem, however they never told me much about how severe my injury is and wether my nail will ever grow back.
After reading other problems on the net I have began to feel as tho my nail will never grow back! And am worried that I completely ripped out the root of my nail, is that possible??? Would you know from the information i have given you if it will ever grow back, if so how long???? Is there anything i can do to encourage it to grow???? Please help
