    thankyouuuu, no just been walking on it loads and feet been killing, hope it gets better soon, rep for you lot

    My son once trapped his thumb in a cupboard, Took him to hospital where they decided to remove his nail.

    Doctor said "be warned their a chance it'll never grow back", I said what's the chance of that, He said about 1 in a million.

    Pleased to say it's grown back fine.

    Your turning into a prawn.

    thankyou,

    ooh. wont that toe hurt if you caught the loose end of your toenail when in bed- under the duvet (caught it on the covers etc)..if you get what i mean...

    Wots wrong with having only 9 toe nails? ....you could get a cool nickname like.....9Nails....:w00t:

    and as for the one thats falling off....did you get any Quidco for it? :-D

    basically best left intact as long as poss if u have injured it. a 'paper stitch' might help keep it in place and stop it being tender. do not put the paper stitch all way round as this can act like a tournequet. your gp practice nurse might put you a nice dressing on if you ask nicely and/or give chocolate!

    thanks for advice guys

    hi, my daughter accidently kicked my big toe a few years ago and lifted my toe nail right up, was soooo painful. it took a while to fall off but when it did i had some nail underneath. it grew back completely normally, took ages to fully grow back thought but hopefully you wont have only 9 nails!

    District 9 sorry.


    He has been engaging in pornographic activity with the prawns!

    if you have not caught your toe or hurt it anywhere i reckon you have a fungus. nothing to worry about. go to direct gov .com health section and it will explain every thing you ask about your health.

    aah its nothing to worry about my 2 big toe nails have just about grown back after years of playing football they were always getting kicked or stood on. went about 3 years with both of them at various stages of regrowth getting kicked and falling off again and again. did consider getting acid treatment at the docs to stop them from growing back but a dislocated knee and subsequently less football done away with that need.
    if it does start to catch on stuff soak in a long hot bath to soften it up and then it will just peel off:thumbsup:

    Broke my big toe last year by dropping a table top on it lol, nail died and eventually fell off, took a couple of months and have just got a complete toenail back, all in all took about a year to have a healthy nail again :-D
