Toe Drama..

I have been having many,many problems with ingrown toenails over the past six months. I kept getting them and had NO idea why. I finally made an appointment with the podiatrist and went today. I was so nervous! I just KNEW it was going to hurt, be painful, etc. I LOVED the doctor! He was so nice and very personal. Long story short, we figured out why I have been getting them SO much! A year ago, my toenail was wripped off at a festival. Over time, the nail started to grow back, but was not growing the right way....Who would have known?! The doctor went in, numbed it, cut the ingrown out, and then killed the root of the nail. He said it will keep the nail from growing into my toe, thank goodness! Over-all, I am glad I went. I should have gone awhile back!

Oh my goodness! I had an aunt..who passed away from breast cancer some time ago....but she always had problems with ingrown toenails. when she we getting cancer treatment, & it killed her immune system, they started getting infected all the time... she ended up having to have all of her toenails burned off with acid & she had to soak her feet in vinegar almost constantly...

it looks like the medical field has come a long way since her toe-troubles...lucky you! haha ;) I hope ya feel better soon!
