Its now been almost 48 hrs and the penny still has not came out. (checking poop) His stools are a mix between being soft and running with some hard pieces and it has a bad smell. He went to the doctor yesterday and had a x-ray. Doc said its in the intestines. Should be out soon. Well he is a very fussy eater and does not eat much. Can this make it take longer to get through the digestive tract.
He does have a bowel movement everyday. As of right now he has had 4 since Sunday when he swallowed it and still no penny. I am alittle worried. Can it take more than a week to come out. Waiting now to see what the doctor has to say .
I have checked his bowel movements every day and he has not passed it. He doesnt have any stomach pain no vomiting or fevers. I am just concerned that it will cause issues with ulcers or something at a later date. Call me crazy but this is insane.
Well its been a week since it went down and still has not came out. I spoke with a Ped. Gastronoglist (sp) I was told it could take up to 2 weeks. WOW seems like a long time. My son has been doing good. No complaints of stomach pain and anything else thats goes along with it. He has a little decreased appetite. However hes a picky eater anyway. I hope it comes out soon. This checking the stool is getting old!!!
