Patient Comments: Ingrown Toenail - Surgery

Did you have a surgical procedure for your ingrown toenail? Please share your story.

Comment from: noname, 13-18 Male (Patient) Published: May 23

I had recurring episodes of an ingrown toenail, so I had it permanently removed. The worst part is the shot. It can go deep and the numbing agent burns. You will not feel the pain for a few days, and then your foot feels sore and it drains.
