: I walked in my house and saw that our dog had just gone on a rampage tearing up trash, toilet paper and anything else it managed to get its paws on. Out of frustration I kicked the door. I was wearing my shoes and did not even kick it that hard. Well I guess my foot hit it at the perfect angle, because I noticed a horrible pain in my big toe.
: I take my shoe and sock off to see that I had just about completely severed my toenail; It was pointing straight up to me as if to say "look what you did this time, moron!!"
: I went to the ER, they deadened it and removed the nail. I know it will be up to 12 months for the nail to grow back, but how long does it normally take to get back to my normal daily routine. I run everyday (or I used to before this incident) and was wondering how long I would be sitting out/when I can put closed toe shoes back on. Also, is there any kind of special bandage dressing that I can use. i Was feeling great yesterday until I had to change the bandage; it was like tearing out a layer of skin the way that sucker was stuck to my toe!
: I appreciate your help!!
