Re: Ingrown nail
Aug 31, 2003
Ingrown toe nails are not a big problem. But they can become infected.

Then the infection has to be cleared up. Sometimes the doctors are not careful in the toenail surgery & they can give you a staff infection. This staff infection can lead to having the toe removed, then the foot, then the leg. Then a blood clot hits the heart ot brain.

Be very carefull about having the procedure done in a doctors office. It should be done in the out-patient area of a good hospital.

Good luck,
