I cannot make up my mind what to do with my toenail. During sparring, my toenail somehow decided to rip up and back but only across half the nailbed. It's nice & bloody though. I sopped up the blood, flipped the nail back down, and taped it up to make it through the rest of class and now I'm back home.

There's a medic guy in class who told me to just superglue it and then tape it for a while. Or, should I soak it to make it soft first and then just rip the rest of the thing off?

What would you do?

Well, they actually use superglue in emergeny rooms nowadays, during surgeries and stuff, so I can see the point of doing it. Just don't like the idea of ripping my toenail off.

If you superglue it you may get an infection under the nail, if you rip it off you may do damage. See a Dr.

It'll fall out when it's ready. Just tape it up. And the superglue they use in surgery really isn't the stuff you buy at home-depot. Very, very similar, but really not the same stuff.

No, but I've got medical glue I had to carry crazy crap around with me when I worked at the hospital. I hate this stupid toenail. M'thinks I may take a few shots & amputate per your suggestion

Hmm, only works if you can afford to pay the doctor even if I liked the bastards. I still have $5,000+ in medical bills from my surgery a 'lil over a month ago. My toe is going to have to heal itself. If it turns green, maybe I'll go in.

Thanks guys! Just had to gripe about my toenail. Everyone seemed to take great pleasure in aiming for it afterwards.

What martial art is it that you do? You've probably told me, but I appear to have left my memory in the office.

Hmm, I wonder if I can use that as an excuse.

Pay?! What do you mean I have to pay? Isn't this free? You can use it as a tax writeoff!

You can only start to write off health costs when they reach over 7.5% of your salary.

Did you know I do TKD too? I'm a purple belt WTF. And I teach kickboxing when the urge takes me.
