Ouchhh that would hurt.. I accidentally tapped my thumb on the corner of my laptop.. that was painful enough. Can't imagine how bad that would have hurt.

It's stopped hurting as much

Here's an updated picture 8 days since it's happened. It looks a bit strange but seems to be doing ok. Still too nervous to trim the nail in case it hurts or something happens..

Wow! It looks a lot better already the band-aid method must be working ;) just a heads up though, most of the times in the past that I have hurt/cut myself near the nail it ends up falling off.

When it starts coming off, I usually wrap a bandaid around it so it can't get caught on anything... fingers crossed though that you get to keep your thumb nail.

I got really darned lucky.. my nail still is dodgey but it's healing up so nicely and I actually is beginning to strengthen again. Though it looks odd cause of no cuticle and a small red bump where it's still infected/inflamed/irritated?

Will get an updated pic soon :)

Update.. I'm still nervous about cutting the nail as the bottom (where the cuticle WAS) is still tender.

And there's a weird black hole type thing on the bottom of my nail.. =/

I had a horse stomp on my big toe once. Turned half of the nail purple. You just gotta tough it out and let it grow out!

Yeah, it cracked along the front of the bruise before it grew out totally. It should be fine in no time! I'd rather have what you have than this again:



I was at a team roping jackpot, and my heeler was so drunk it was suprising he could stay on his horse. As I was dallying, he heeled the steer (waaaaay before he should have) , and the coils of the rope closed around my hand. I still had 3 steers to rope too... My finger is deformed to this day. As least yours will go away!!!!!
