I wouldn't advise
no other podiatrist around as backup/help
Do you have someone to assist you during nail surgery? I always do the procedure in 2's as you never know when a patient may have complications i.e anaphylaxis shock!
Regarding post op. I dress the toe the next day & then 1 wk, 2wk & 4wk,4wk then discharge. If there is infection or problems then this changes. If the patient has blood blisters, you mentioned trauma to the nail bed so i wouldn't be too concerned. Check her footwear as this could be causing trauma too.
Redness around the PNF can take a while to settle it depends if the redness is from trauma or a phenol burn etc. Just ensure the patient is doing saline baths and dressing appropriately and obviously check for the S&S of infection.
Hope this helps
