Dude, that's crazy! Did they irrigate it first with iodine water or anything under a little pressure?
My Mom had what I only can say was a big pimple in the middle of her back. She discovered it when it leaked wreaking wet stuff and asked me to take a look at it. Oh boy!
Seems a stuck thorn had broken off right in between her shoulder blades. Wearing gloves and goggles I massaged a heaping teaspoon of gunk out of it. 'course that was fun! A week later the same thing and I shipped her off to the doctor for antibiotics and we bandaged the thing with bacitracin. She ended up with a permanent, noticeably deep, depression about two inches wide.
Eat your spinach and keep walking 'cause it sounds like you aren't quite outta the woods yet.
