I stepped on a needle when I was a kid and it broke in the heel of my foot. They got out the piece they could see, but the eye of the needle stayed in my foot for the same reason (would have been more painful to have it removed). A few years ago, I twisted my foot just enough to move that little piece of needle in my foot and it festered. It was removed in an easy procedure. I gotta say, it sure was funny to see that piece of needle in my foot on an x-ray!
