I took hubby to the doctor today to have an ingrown toenail removed. They let me stay in the room and watch. It was really fast and I had no idea how much nail grows under the skin. When I saw him pull out the pieces (about 1/2 the size of a dime on each side), I was amazed. Then they put this stuff inside his toe to kill the root of the nail. Watching them put that stuff in was wild. Thankfully hubby's toe was numb because it was giving me goosebumps watching that part. He has a list of post op instructions and the biggest one is staying off of the foot for a day and not letting it get bumped or banged for a couple of weeks. Our lab mix likes to walk on your feet, so we are definitely going to have to keep an eye on her.
