Yesterday I got my other ingrown toenail removed. Here's the before picture:
The left toenail is healing nicely.
You can see the cut-out on the left side of the nail from the last time I had my right toe treated. There was a bigger cut-out on the right side, which had completely dug into the toe.
Now it looks like this:
Unfortunately, the painkiller (lidocaine) was less effective on the right toe. I cursed my way through the drive home (fortunately I was alone, and could curse as loudly as I wanted). The weird thing is: my toe hurts (the toenail was literally just ripped off) but it no longer hurts to walk on.
Which is awesome, really.
