Re: Need Help: FishBone in Throat
I concur, ear nose throat doctor would be best. They should be able to place a camera down your throat to find it, and then use tools to remove it. They will also be able to more readily identify the foreign object, whether it be a fish bone or something else.
Now might I share a funny story with you? I was about 13, at a restaurant with family, scarfing down my favorite fish salmon. I guess i was enjoying it so much that I swallowed a big mouth full and before I knew it i thought I was choking. I ran up to the bathroom, only to find that there was a HUGE fish bone stuck in my left tonsil. Of course the gag reflex and everything kicked in, my mom found me in the bathroom and saw it then went to the restaurant/resort manager asking for plyers. The restaurant wouldn't allow her to remove it, primarily because they were fearful that we would sue. WHy would we sue when I was too silly to gobble my salmon like it was the last piece of fish on earth. Long story short, I got my first ambulance ride, with sirens, and had a Doctor charge somewhere around $75 for using plyers to remove the bone. I could have had it done for free by my mother.
I hope that this provides a little humor, just don't go taking plyers to your own throat now, just go see the ENT!
