I Feel Like Cutting Off My Big Toe.

Hi! Last year this time, I gave myself a manicure.
When it came down to my big toe on the left foot, I couldn’t pull of the corner nail on the left side of the big toe with a normal toe clipper, so I twist it off until I finally got it to pop off. It was alright until a few days later when it became in infected. I soaked it with warm salty peroxide water, and I THOUGHT it was healed, until I woke up this morning and the same problems occured. I have a foot appt. on Monday the 24th of November ’03, and I am terrified of going. I am in a tremendous amount of pain, and I really am not in the mood to have someone touch or poke my foot to escalate the pain even more. Please give me advice before I take this last mile… DESPERATELY NEEDING YOUR ADVICE AND HELP….

    First of all, I am glad you have an appointment to be seen. Second, do not be terrified. Your doctor will explain how the nail ccan be fixed and it is a very common procedure done by podiatrists. Afterward, there is little or no discomfort for most patients. I am sorry you have to wait another 10 days to see your doctor. Couldn’t they get you in sooner? The sooner you get in the sooner you will be out of pain. Good luck.
