Back in middle of September or start of October I dropped my laptop on my toe, it was fine for a few days just a little red then one day It was very sore and noticed a slight bit of sticky blood on it, and about 1/3 the nail was black. I phoned doctor who said it was just damaged and it will heal as normal.
It had no change until 2 weeks ago so about 4 months since it happened and all of a sudden the black part of the nail started moving up towards end of toe so I guess it started growing, then a day or so ago noticed it tender again and this morning noticed the nail just below/under the black bit looks weak and has a line going all the way across.
Just worried it may drop off soon leaving me with half a nail!

It's just the bruising growing out. Once it reaches the end of the toenail it's bound to be more sensitive as it's coming into contact with your shoes. Wouldn't worry too much, if it doesn't go in about a week go back the doctors.
