After the operation
After having nail surgery, your toe will be wrapped in a bandage to allow the area to heal and to help prevent an infection developing. You should rest your affected foot and keep it raised for one to two days after the operation.
Once the anaesthetic wears off, your toe may be sore and tender. To help alleviate any pain, you may need to take a painkiller, such as paracetamol, and wear soft or open-toed sandals for the first few days following surgery.
Please make an appointment with the nurse at your GP Practice to have the dressings changed the following day.†Soak your toes with salt water or antiseptics to help the area to heal.
