thumb injury

I INJURED MY THUMB in a wood chipper. E.R. DOC stitched up lacerations and reattached nail to nail bed..a fracture occurred near tip but bone was not out of place and I think that's healed ..16 days later my wife has removed stitches that held the dead nail and removed it.My thumb is still a bit swollen and quite tender from crushing.. I did a course of antibiotics and I don't think it's infected.. ..My question;Will drinking water containing Knox Gelatin speed nail growth?Any suggestions besides don't be such an idiot in the future?
