Pain after toe nail surgery-how to prevent it

I will probably have a small toe nail surgery in a couple of days. It seems that i am suffering from paronychia, a bacterial infection under my left big toe nail.

I tried cell calts, homeopathy, folk remedies, acupuncture(auriculotherapy), herb leafs, bathing in salt, even the black ointment used for horses when they have issues but nothing seems to help.

I am not in pain, not even when i walk, but when i press bellow my toe nail it hurts, and also it is red, inflamed and there is non stop oozing of pus.

Anyway, talking to people i realised that post op pain for this surgery is very strong since there are a lot of nerve ending in the toe and i wanted to know what can i use to prevent it or at least make it as light as possible.

It is said that people can't lower their leg for days from the amount of pain, so i need something that works.

I have Arnica 30C in alcohol by Boiron and i also have Arnica ointment. It seems that it is the best remedy for pain prevention, i just wish to confirm it and ask for instruction, when should i start using it and how much should i use?

Should i start before surgery?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Physical points like toe nails or at palm of feet it is the medicine Hypericum 200c which works far more better than Arnica at this types of cases. When u have a surgery the first medicine should me Ledum Pal and than the Hypericum. If it is gaining Pus than describe the colour and smells of that pus cells discharge.

In the state of pus cell discharge the medicine must have change in selection for u. So describe the pus cell sac ration. Does what smells bad?

I still haven't been to the surgeon. Still have hopes i can avoid him.

The pus is either watery yellow or thick yellow at first, than only watery blood comes out.

The smell is strange, it doesn't smell to good but also not to bad, just very strange.

I have tried Silicea 6X and 200C but nothing changed.

What was the last remedy u used for this problem at which potency?

Meanwhile Start using Symphytum Q 20 Drops with a mug of warm water and dress the wound every day at least twice. Take 4 Tablets of Calc Sulph 6X 4 times a day at morn, noon, afternoon and night at 30 min after meal.

Report me as soon as possible.
