Can The Swallowed Bone Pass Through The Intestine?
Hello. The bone in my throat, thank God, can be swallowed, can it be broken down in my stomach? And can the bone pass through my intestines? And he said that bones can be crushed in the stomach with levels of stomach acid, so how do you protect the stomach? R n r nThank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Ingestion of bones is often a worrisome condition, especially because of its severity and size, which may be sharp, can get it stuck in the throat and cause sore throat. However, if the bone has been swallowed, then you don't need to worry. As our colleagues have said, stomach acid and other enzymes in the body will take care of it and even if it is not completely digested, the bone will still be wasted along with other food waste.
Regarding whether it can pass through the intestine, with a bone shape that is only long and not wide, most likely it can. This is also supported by a flexible intestinal structure and has a 'massaging' motion to push food scraps up to the anus. Even people who are ingested by iron such as flakes of stirrup or perhaps plastic which is clearly indigestible will eventually come out, so you don't have to worry. Then to protect the stomach, there is actually no specific advice, what you can do is avoid consuming foods that are too spicy, oily and too acidic, soft drinks or caffeinated, and avoid taking drugs without a doctor's prescription because some of them can damage the stomach. So, hopefully this is useful.
