Lost Big Toe More Than A Year Ago And It Still Hasn't Grown Back All The Way
Hello. 2 years back I have hit my big toe and the nail got damage and came off. The nail started to grow back but never grown to the front growing up?
Any other symptoms?:
Is the lack of full growth of the nail a cosmetic concern or do you have other symptoms? You may just wait and watch as is not a serious matter.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

A lot toe consider.: The first step in determining what is going on with your toe is to have it evaluated by a specialist.

It would be interesting to note how the injury and subsequent swelling has affected the range of movement or muscle strength of the toe. ...Read more

Should I be concerned about a blood vessel that burst on my big toe? What causes this? I had this happen last year on my thumb.
Burst or Bruise.: I'm not so sure if your blood vessels are "bursting" or blood is leaking out as a function of bruising, caused by some element of mild trauma. The fact that it has happened twice in two years, especially on two trauma prone areas, is not as significant as it would be if this "bursting" was happening all over. At any rate, a thorough history and physical would do wonders to remove all doubt. ...Read more
