Smashed Fingernail Blood Draining: DIY Surgery

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/XUAjQqAqooE I was out mining for gold and had to pull a boulder from the hole I was digging in. The way the rock looked, I assumed it was rounded in nature. Turns out it was more like an egg shape so when I pulled it out it became much heavier than I anticipated. The rock fell along with my hand and it smashed my fingernail right on my pickaxe!!! The result was blood pooling under my fingernail in what is called a subungual hematoma. These things hurt SO SO BAD!!!! Legit kept me up all night, could not sleep more than a few minutes. The pain led me to do something I’ve never done before… DIY surgery! I sterilized and heated up a paper clip and burned right through my nail to relieve the pressure of the blood below. The result was INSTANT relief. It took a few weeks for the nail to fall off and it never got infected. I did however wash it and soak it twice a day in soapy water. I hope this video helps people out there who have blood under the nail and need to know how to relieve the pressure!

I got a bloodclot on all my fingers when my brother smashed the door on them and I wasnt sure how to fix it so I just kinda left them and after a while the pain went away (I still have them and they look weird but we tried to remove it but the blood had dried so the doctors just released pressure on it)

Hey Nick! have just followed your video - pierced my the nail of my big toe with a hot paperclip. Thank you so much for your video!! have been in tears of pain for the past two days - what a relief.
Elias Alegria (3 months ago)
that look more painful than mine when i crushed my pinky with the truck
Qwertyboy (4 months ago)
It's happening to me now does it hurt to put the hole in???
Nick Uhas (4 months ago)
it doesn't because your nail has no nerves... however don't push too hard, as the nail bed (right underneath the nail) has many nerve endings. Let the hot paperclip do all the work and melt through the nail to get to the blood pool

Wow this is insanely satisfying when it pops
Drakkarius (5 months ago)
one month with one of my toes like that, didnt hurt until now, so i needed the pain to go away I followed this video and after i did the hole it hurt a lot then the pain started to get away. Recommendation just make the hole as soon as posible.

During the first day of the crucible my senior drill instructor killed me, then told me to go do a high crawl (with my rifle slinged to my back) , so I got up and did it, then right when I started the compensator of my M16A4 service rifle decided to fall off of my back and land right on the nail of my middle finger. I just graduated yesterday and am about to do this. Thanks for the video!

How is your nail so short
AhhSole (8 months ago)
I droped a wheelbarrow on my foot today, litteraly just burnt through my nail then and oh..my..god. The amount of presure that came from my nail, I nearly shot myself in the eye with blood as soon as I removed the red hot pin, but it was instant, painless relief, it feels so much better now, thanks!

I hope this will work for me. I smashed my finder between the gates more than 1 month ago. There is no progress of relief. I will give that method a shot. By the way, this video is not gross at all :)
Nick Uhas (8 months ago)
I didn't think it was that gross either (but I also worked in the anatomy department on cadavers in college)... hope it works for you, it certainly worked for me!!!

Nick that was awesome to show because your saving people alot of money by doing it yourself, ( if possible. ) I'm very sensitive to blood & the like, this didn't make me feel bad. I learned something new which is great. I'm 56 yrs old, so no worry that I'll try this unless I absolutely have to. PEACE LOVE & DREAM'S! PS...I seen you on AGT! But didn't see if you moved on? And it was great from what I seen. I think Howie was a bit upset though...? if you can talk about it??? was he upset?🍁 💝🗺🌐📷🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟✔👌😉🌱🌹🌴🌈🌊🕊💞💭🎬

Chelsea Bolch (1 year ago)
I totally understand how much pain you were in! I got my left ring finger slammed into my locker when I was in high school and my nail did the same thing. It hurt so bad! Any way I was an athletic trainer and when I went to that class my coach had me soak my finger into a solution then he used a tiny drill to release the pressure and blood. But it scared me and I moved my hand and well the drill bit stayed into my nail... That hurt lol but It did feel instantly better! Your method looks less painful haha!!!
Every event of your life, you take advantage of it to leave us some teaching, Thank you Nick!
Jinno Parangue (1 year ago)
I don't really have an injured finger right now but I still watched this for...you know, future events that are unpredictable and that might happen to me as well (I hope not). Better to be ready, right? But I have a question, does it hurt your nail when your putting a hole in it? I mean since the paperclip is hot it might slightly burn your flesh in the finger.

God Speed to you!!!
Anders P (1 year ago)
It seems like the puncture to drain was done pretty low down the nail - for clarification sake, had you lost the entire nail after doing this? Kinda curious if maybe less would have been lost if the initial site was up higher like the second. That's really, really neat though. Thank you for sharing! I've done some DIY stuff such as this, and it's worked out better for me personally rather than waiting to see doctors initially at least.
Anders P (1 year ago)
Nick Uhas Folks used to do it all the time anyway, and in less safe conditions right? Plus in rural areas - so much more accessible for people today to do it themselves (as long as done safely!). Thanks for the reply, hope the nail looks better for the wedding! :)
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
Totally agree with you on this! Also, the nail seemed to be letting go even when it was just the blood separating it. I'm not 100%, but I believe the hole placement had very little to do with losing the whole nail. In fact, I'm glad the whole nail fell off, provided a nice clean fresh slate!
trisha fallon (1 year ago)
I dropped a glass bottle on my big toe years ago, when I went to drs she got a paper clip out of her desk drawer and did the exact same thing :') I still can't believe how painful it was, honestly the most pain i've ever been in - and it's incredible how much relief it brings when that pressure is gone! :)
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
RRIIIGGHHHTTT!!! I could not believe how much pain that little bit of blood under the nail created! Glad to hear it all worked out!
thank you for this video. you helped me discover I should never watch videos like this, as I feel queasy after watching it. suppose it's better a person I like watching than a random person.

Yikes!

Nick I had to do the same thing and what happened is there will end up being a space under your finger nail
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
thanks for the heads up! I'm just glad the pain is gone!
Sophie Eaton (1 year ago)
This was so cool, can you do some more like this please! Obviously I don't want you to keep hurting yourself or get your finger crushed again but more stuff like this would be awesome. P.s please don't hurt yourself again🙏
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
we can certainly keep the format and topics like this! But yea, def gonna try and not keep hurting myself ; ) Thanks for watching!

I found you from smash lab so I started to watch you I love your content so far keep up the good work this will be realy useful for people who actually mine and who have a job who get hurt in a daily basis sense it might happen to their nails
TotalTimaniacXx (1 year ago)
lol I've been biting my nails since I was little, and I'm pretty sure my nails grow much faster than normal. It would only take me 2 or 3 months to grow a full nail

*Story* My mom just happened to be over and she told me that she had smashed her finger on a door and it was really hurting. Coincidentally, this video came out. I showed it to her and she did it. It actually worked! She said the pain was reduced so much only after a few minutes! Thanks for showing this Nick!

Haryll (1 year ago)
I had one of these! My finger got slammed on a door I never knew about this yet! It hurt so bad! I feel you ....
Wesley Cantrell (1 year ago)
yeah he's fine and the nurse at my school didn't even know that you could do that
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
if it works, it works! With room temp you only run the higher risk of infection (didn't burn the little bacterial on the needle first) ... hope it works out fine though!
Wesley Cantrell (1 year ago)
HarylGamer I have never had one but my dad had one two days ago and we popped it by going under the nail with a room temp needle, yes I know thats stupid
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
I FEEL you!!! it legit kept me up all night... you can hear it in my voice in the video (like I have a cold)... trust me this works, and it's amazing!
Sarcastic Brit (1 year ago)

MrFloodey (1 year ago)
Clean your cooker, Nick! :D It was actually rather interesting to see! How much would've an ER/Doctors visit cost? Here in the UK, it'd be free - just really curious as to how much it'd cost roughly.
MrFloodey (1 year ago)
As soon as the pressure is relieved, totally, it's like growing a new finger. Even the slightest pressure point is the only thing you can think of, especially on fingers. Glad it's all good now! :)
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
that's actually just the new nail growing in, looks smaller, but it will grow into place. The old nail fell off in different pieces because it was still attached at the base... so I trimmed it in stages. It kept getting caught on things and I didn't want to rip the nail bed and make it bleed. It was actually more comfortable once the old nail was totally off!
MrFloodey (1 year ago)
Why did the nail shrink? Or did you just cut the dead part of the nail off, or have to remove it? I know from experience that I had to have my nail removed by ER when I crushed it - was too high a risk of infection to keep it on.
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
exactly!!! that's why I did it to begin with!!! legit would have done the same thing... but I prefer to be the person putting holes in my nails ; )
MrFloodey (1 year ago)
Chuck some soap and hot water on it - sort it right out! It's crazy to think all they'd have done would be exactly the same thing, and charge the price of your arm for it!
Jus Jaisinghani (1 year ago)
It was interesting to know that one can hole a nail with a heated pin. And ya it was not at all gross.
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
riiight!!! Can also be done with a small drill bit (hand held)
