I had foot surgery about 1 1/2 years ago and ever since then have had problems with the nails/toes that were worked on not growing. My nail WILL NOT grow. My podiatrist put me on Sporonox, but they won't grow. It's like a very high layer of nail forms on top of another nail but nothing goes forward and there's no gap at all between the skin and what I do have a nail. He suggested toenail removal as sometimes these nails get "velcroed down" and just can't grow out. Has anyone heard of this dilemma? How long does it take for your nails to grow out and is there a chance they won't grow back at all? He recommended either the removal of the nails or trying that other drug (Starts with an "L") but I'd have to be on it 3 months and it may not even work (would it force the nail to grow??) Sorry so long, but I'm very concerned over what my next step will be. Thanks for any and all input!
