I had both of the inner nails of my big toes removed last July. The shots stung, I won't lie, but after the first one on each toe, you don't feel it. I didn't watch the procedure, so was surprised to see Toe Bro ram that instrument down the side of the nail to release it fro the nail bed before cutting it out. Almost no bleeding and you can walk on them. In addition to the twice daily epsom salt soaks, I was instructed to swab the wounds with iodine.
Ibuprofen for pain, basically zero pain after day 2. After that, it was just keeping it clean and dry. It does stay gooey for awhile, dry by about a month. Doc says it takes about one year for a toenail to grow out completely. I also have a ridge that's growing out on the side of the nail, but it's nearly to the top now.
No more pain from digging out ingrown toenails! My only regret is that I'd not done it sooner!
I like the show so far, but what was that foot show they were also previewing? It showed a woman getting her blown achilles tendon fixed. I am not down for watching that!
