So two days ago now I managed to put a cacti spine straight through the knucked on the middle finger of my left hand. I was using a large hard bristle brush to dislodge some scale from a Trichocereus Peruvianus when I slipped and caused a 5cm long spine to go through the middle knuckle of my left hand and straight out the other side. Due to the pain I flinched and this caused the spine to snap off and I was not able to get it out myself.
So I went for a trip to the Doctors and then the Hospital, here is the damage.......The hole in the front is the entry point, it came out the other side.
