Well today I had the dreaded ingrown toenail procedure done. I have had an ingrown toenail for at least a month. (I know bad) Well, I have kept putting off this procedure, because I had one removed before when I was younger. Pretty much, I think it traumatized me about shots and needles...at least during this procedure. When I had it done before all I could remember was that shot. It was the worst shot I had ever had in my entire life. No lie. Terrible. So, being a scardy cat of this shot I decided I would take matters in my own hands. I knew what I had to do to get rid of this ingrown mess and I attempted, several times, and couldn't take it anymore! Well anyways, today was the day. I told the doctor I was terrified of the shot and I really was dreading this experience. I started sweating really bad and apparently I turned white and the doctor was afraid I was going to pass out. Ha. (Jessica, I am sure that you can relate!) The funniest part was when the doctor was cutting out the ingrown toenail, she said, "well looks like we have been doing some bathroom precedures of our own here!" HAHA! Bryan and I cracked up. It was so funny that she could tell I had been trying to get it out! ha. Well after all was said and done, I have to admit their technique was absolutely amazing! Not going to lie, it still hurt, but was a million times better. They practically froze my toe with this spray so it took away some of the pain of the actual shot. Then 2 shots, cut the edge of the nail, dig around and make sure it's all gone, bandage it up and then I am on my way. All was good until the anesthesia started to wear off! GRRRRRR! Then I could really tell that she had messed around in there. Oh well. I am glad that this will be over with in a few days and I will be back to normal! Until then...check out the "Smurf" toe and Bryan likes to call it.
It looks real tough with the blood seeping out of the band aid! hehe! :) I thought yall would like that!
