Help! Big toenail fell off. How long does it take a toenail to grow back?
I lost my big toe nail just over a month ago when I was visiting Scotland. It just fell off in my welly. It was such a surprise cos I thought that my toenails were securely fastened to my toes at the time. I didn't even realise that my toenail had fallen off until I was sitting in a friend's house one day and he seen that my left big toe had no more nail and he started pointing and laughing at it. everyone in the room just started laughing and pointing at my toe. It was so embarrassing. I could see clearly that I had no more nail on my big toe, so I googled "my big toe nail has fallen off". That brought me here to this very helpful forum. It's great to hear that there are more people like me. but I just have one question, does it really take as long as 18 months for the damn thing to grow back!!? I don't know if i can last that long, it's been a month and there has been absolutely no sign of growth. Nothin. I'm as nail-less today as i was the day it fell off. To make matters worse my friend is still making fun of me and calling me all sorts of hurtful nicknames. Not sure how much more I can take of this!!!! Please help,
No more nails
