RE: Upcoming toenail surgery

I am diabetic, newly diagnosed, and both of my big toes have ingrown nails. My podiatrist has recommended that I have portions of each nail permanently removed, about a third on each side of each toe. Rather than do it in the doc's office, I have chosen to have it done in the hospital as an outpatient. Has anyone else had this procedure done? What is the healing time I can expect, and what about post-op pain? I've had lots of surgeries in the past, but this one scares me more than anything. Any comments are appreciated. Thank-you.
