That would have to be an old country boy who got a fishing lure stuck through his hand between finger and thumb. Medical advice would be to go to urgent care or ED so it could be removed and properly cleaned out, and get a tetanus booster if needed. He showed up in my office 2 weeks later with his hand wrapped in duct tape. He had taken his fishing knife, rinsed it in the lake, cut out the hook himself, and taped it up with the duct tape he had in his boat so he didn’t have to stop fishing. He had continued to wrap it in duct tape for the next two weeks, until it got so swollen and sore that he couldn’t stand it.
Needless to say, he bought himself a hospital stay for IV antibiotics and surgical repair. He didn’t lose the hand though, and was back to fishing a couple weeks later
