Since I don't go to the hand doctor until next week and no one at the office ever calls back I have a question:

How can you tell if your nail is gonna fall off. Following that, since the dead area is kinda a dry (on the outside) area protecting the other bits growing back... What happens to the nail as it gets pushed out? Will it lift the other stuff off and then I'll have a goey mess?

Shower thoughts today while cleaning the wound.

 

And because some will say :TTIWWP:

That is a lot less gross than last time!  Nobody is gonna notice anything when it is all done healing.

That's actually looking pretty good.

Always hard to say with nails. If the bed got damaged, the new nail will slowly push the old one out. You'll have to trim it short to keep it from snagging or wear a finger tip band aid.

I’m not a doctor but I’ll make a guess anyway. You won’t lose the nail, as it grows out it will slide right over the black part. Not sure when that black part will shed, probably when it’s ready to and it’s healed up underneath.

It looks to me like a fairly healthy nail bed. The dried pus/scab material will fall away or you can wash it off. My mother would have used hydrogen peroxide on that. The black necrotic tissue likely has new born tissue beneath. I wouldn't rush the process involved with that.

It's getting better. Pain only when I'm dumb and hit it on something or I try to use it where it has to bend more than it wants to.

@road0315 it is both itchy as hell and weirdly numb, the leg or foots fallen asleep numb with pins and needles.

The Dr did mention that'll happen in the next 4-6 months.

Yay.

I didn't look at the picture, but I'm glad to hear the reports that it's improving.

My new finger nails grew in under the beat up nail.

Same.  Google pics?  Maybe you've shared them with others who can see them?

I saw them when he first posted them. Blank screen now. Maybe they will come back later. His thumb looked much better.

When I have lost toenails due to running, they took their own sweet time before falling off. Be patient.

Don’t try to hurry it off. Take my word on this.
