In Reply to: Re: Toenail Removal - Can someone please answer my questions (Need to make decision soon) posted by bilal on April 14, 2000 at 13:49:51:

: :hi,
: I had my toenails removed a month ago today and my feet still hurt from the surgery. They haven't healed yet but they are healing.
: I only had a recent toenail problem and the dr. suggested that I get them removed. Since the insurance was paying for it what the hell!
: It was supposed to take a month or so to heal but I guess I am the exception. My body has been reacting to the chemical
: they used to burn the nail root. I hope the pain that I've been going through the past month will be well worth it.

Your not the only exception...I too had a toe nail removed...this will be the 5th time...the last 4 times were done by a general practioner
and this time I went to a pediatrist....his techniqes were a bit different...but I don't remember it ever taking this long to heal....this is now going on
my 7th week...he had told me it would be 4-6 weeks....he has told me to keep it bandaged...so it hasn't had a chance to dry up yet...I'm in a dilema...I'm
not quite sure what to do with it.
If anyone has any suggestions or has been through this pleas let me know.
