Dont feel bad. I dont have any toenails on my big toes either. I had 10 surgerys on both feet before i went and had them removed all the way. One looks like a normal toenail, but the other looks all retarded. I got proof that they are gone so go ahead and call shens if you want.

One thing that is nice is that you dont have to worry that if you get your foot stepped on, it wont hurt bad anymore. Did you have to wear those funky shoes too where they cant bend at all and look like sandles . Yea i had to wear those to school and everyone was asking me why do i have those shoes on. lol. Now people think that im lying if they dont know the story so i take off one of my socks and show them them. Then they are like. Damn those things are nasty. lol

for supah: if it hasent bleed at all or has like a smelling white discharge near the part where its ingrown it shoud be fine if u soak it in warm salty water for about 5-10 minutes a day then get a small piece of cotton and prop the nail up and sick that under it it should grow back to normal after that. and if it has bleed or has a discharge get an appointment to see a doctor is my advise cause if it gets worse it hurts very bad and the pain will be worse then the surgery. and ya the sides get ingrown
