Toenail matrix removed - how long to heal?
I've had some problems with ingrown toe nails on one of my big toes for several years. The Dr. recommended that I get part of the toenail matrix (root) destroyed so that part of the toenail does not grow back.
In the past when only the ingrown part of the nail was removed, my toe healed quickly. Within two weeks I was walking about as normal. However, this is taking longer. It's been almost a month and the area where the matrix was removed is still a bit swollen and reddish. No puss, and no pain unless I purposely apply pressure to it.
If you have had this minor surgery, can you tell me how long it took for the destroyed matrix area to heal.
The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.
