Can I get HIV from masturbating with fruits?

Question: 

I am so sorry to ask such a vague question but still, I need to get this out of my chest!

I got a cucumber, put condom on it and masturbated with it ( i.e, put it in my arse ). After a few minutes, I noticed that the condom tore apart. A removed it immediately and threw them away. I am too afraid to have real sex, that is why I used a cucumber.

I started to think about HIV only after 2-3 days when some of my muscles started to ache and given the hypochondriac that I am, I started relating these aches to seroconversion. Is there something to worry about?

Am I correct in assessing that I CANNOT get HIV from a cucumber even if I use it without a condom?

Thank You for taking the time to curb my irrational fears
