Toenail Removed

Last year, I had an ingrown toenail cut out. Well, the stupid thing grew back, worse than before. This time, I had the whole toenail removed.

(Seriously, there's gore).

Here's the toe right after an injected painkiller:


The entire nail bed had gotten infected in the previous couple of days. Walking was not fun.

After the doctor cut out the nail, he wrapped the toe in gauze:


This morning, I removed the wrapping:


It looks disgusting, but I honestly can't remember the last time it hurt this little.

The nail bed was washed down with acetic acid, so the nail should never grow back. I'll never have an ingrown toenail on that toe again!!!
