Toe nail came off

Hello . About two weeks ago i sustained an injury on my foot . It hurt really bad and the blood got clot and the pain relieved in a weeks time . after a week i noticed that my toe nail was so loose and shaky like its about to fall off . I tried and cut it very slowly and yesterday accidentally my foot hit the chair and the toe nail seperated from the toe at a 45 degree angle like the bottom is still attached to the nail bed .. What am i supposed to do ?!!

The nail can be clipped off as near as base without damaging the nail bed. The new nail will take around 6 to 18 months to grow back. Till then take wear shoes so as not to damage the nail bed.
