: : If a toenail has to be removed (big toe) is there a recuperation period? Is it painful, and how long before you can wear a shoe?
: I had an ingrown toenail removed, it was not painful but it took forever to heal,of course I had diabetes at the time and didn't know it.So your would probably heal quicker.Not a good time to do it in winter if you have to go out with shoes.Ilive in Fl and gave up the summer and I lived on the beach.OUCH....It was good tho, I have another one to do.
I just had a ingrown toenail removed and it is painful let me tell ya. getting it done isn't bad but once the novicane wears off its bad.
