How long does it take for a big toe after its been removed to heal?
I was at work and droped a very heavy object on my big toe. resultiing in the doctor having to remove the toe nail and stitch up the gash i had.(fractured nail bed). I NEVER had anything more painful in my entire life. i could barely walk and now im finally off the crutches but its still pretty hard to walk normally. My toes still looks pretty bad and i just want to know about how long after the stiches are removed with my toe nail look semi-normal.

It will take up to 6 months (or longer) for the nail to replace itself from the cuticle to the free edge. xxx

Several weeks.

This is one of the most painful injuries one can have. There are a wealth of sensory nerves in that area, and the circulation may be compromised, due to other factors in your life. You can also depend on a secondary infection virtually 100 percent of the time. All of these factors add up to a very painful and lengthy convalesence. How long is difficult to predict, form he information you have given, however, it would not be uncommon to be debelitated until the new nail grows back, if it does. That takes several weeks. Talk to your physicain, there are some long lasting NSAID analgesics that may make your life easier, Good luck.

OMG!!! that must have been painful... Taht once happened to my dad and it took alot of months like 6 for the nail to grow back but about 1 month for the pain to stop.... but if you damaged the nail bed chances are the nail may never grow back.....please note i said chance i did not say it will never grow back...

At least 6 months for the nail to grow back. Sorry to hear about your toe and hope it gets better soon..

Ya,,,toes are pretty sensitive for sure! My guess is you'll be back to normal (pain free), in about 6 months (from when the accident happened).
I also advise you to wear protective steel toed shoes if you are ever again in a situation in which you might sustain an injury to your feet.
God bless you and your pretty little toes!

Toes don't grow back, sorry.

Unfortunately, the answer is not really possible to give, as dependant on the damage, and each individuals powers of recovery.
Sometimes, it is better to totally remove the nail, as to allow a new nail to form equally over the bed. and would likely give a better, even growth of new tissue.
For some it may be quick, others slower, depending on age, but generally I would reckon it could be up to 6 weeks.
Soaking the toes in a warm saline solution, though it might sting, should help keep the wounds clean.
Good luck,
Mike t.
