Even if you have never had a problem with ingrown toenails before, if you are pregnant, it is likely that you will experience one during your pregnancy. This is for several reasons. First, your nails tend to grow more rapidly during pregnancy, so they require more frequent care. Secondly, your feet and ankles may swell, increasing the likelihood that the edges of your nails will dig into the flesh around your toenails.

Breaking an ankle is never fun, especially if you find yourself on the receiving end of multiple breaks at once. If you've recently had a trimalleolar fracture repair surgery on your ankle, then you've already been advised that the healing process can take months. While your surgeon will most likely prescribe medication to keep you comfortable once you've been released from the hospital, knowing what to do to reduce pain and encourage healing can help you to stay positive, too.
