My mother has but it is due to her autoimmune disease and she has had them pulled many years ago. I tried to do one and it was excruciatingly painful so I chickened out.

I had one pulled out not long after I'd joined the Navy. It was horribly ingrown.

Painful? I've been shot and it didn't hurt as bad as having my right large toenail removed.

Why do you want to have them removed?

There are fungi issues that can enter the blood stream. If worried get a second opinion from a doctor. Do not dismiss doctors advice due to laymen advice. That being said it is never a bad idea to get a second opinion from a professional.

most of the time we cant really feel our feet....and if we get something in our feet ...we dont notice it...i check my feet and i am careful to wear shoes...the last time i was barefoot was at ocracoke island...you cant walk on the beach cause of shells...i see a foot doctor every 61 days to have my nails clipped and i have filament tests where they poke your foot with this filament to see if you feel...the a mini ulta sound to check your circulation...
