My husband's foot was punctured by palm leave thorn.  It developed
into a virulant infection and he was on crutches for months. It
still is not back to normal, a year later.  Does anyone know
what is on the tip of this thorn and why it causes such a savere
reaction?  We never got a diagnosis.  It did not get into the
bones apparently.  Will it ever get back to normal.
