  • well it was hanging on my a thread too but I reached down and yanked it off before the shock lessened cause I knew it would hurt more if I waited. If u can get it off quick I would or it is gonna hurt again if it gets ripped off again, unless u can band aid it and save the nail.

  • Mine happened on Sat. So now I think it is sort of "glued" down by blood and gunk...(gross I know)

    I think it will just get pushed off when the new toenail starts growing....right now, if you look at my doesnt look that much different...but I can feel that its a loose tooth....

    I am sure I will loose it, but its stuck right now.
