Overcoming Chicken Bones That Are Swallowed And Involved In The Neck?
Good evening, sorry I want to ask. Yesterday at lunch time I unconsciously swallowed a chicken wing. Long wing bone if I’m not mistaken 1/2 and after that I feel this bone stuck in the right throat .. Position in the middle of the neck area. I was thinking about drinking as much as possible, drinking cooking oil, swallowing fist rice and also banana but still still I tried to go to the ER just this morning but it was not treated, even though I already told you that around 3 am I felt nauseous and vomiting, it was only the fluid that came out but as if there was blood coming out, even though only a little. So I decided to go to UGD because I was worried, but at the hospital I was not treated for some reason. Then finally I went home and drank up to 2 bottles of 600ml size, ate rice and bananas again, but the results remained the same … Still stuck. Only now stuck already in the neck area near the bottom near the cervical vertebrae, the right side. Pain, block. What should I do? the bone pierced the walls of my throat. I felt like he was standing up and every time I swallowed or breathed, I was always in pain in that area. I was afraid, it sounded as trivial as possible so I was not treated in the ER but honestly I felt very, very worried.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, you have done all the things that you can do to remove the bones stuck in your esophagus. If you go to the hospital emergency room and the emergency room is busy (many critical patients need to be treated because if they are not treated immediately the patient will die), then these patients will certainly take precedence over patients who can still walk and talk alone. In principle, doctors and health workers in the ER will prioritize emergency patients compared to the order in which patients arrive at the hospital.
If indeed you still feel the bone is stuck in your esophagus, you can consult directly to the ENT doctor. An ENT doctor has more complete equipment that can be used to look into your throat to find the involved bone and remove it or push it inside (depending on the location of the hook). Sometimes the bone stuck in the esophagus is actually no longer involved, but the wound caused (a scratch on the esophagus mucosa) often causes you to still feel that something is stuck in your esophagus. As long as you don't experience shortness of breath, extreme, sharp pain in your neck and chest area, or you experience a large amount of blood vomiting because of this, you don't really need to worry too much.
Here are some other things you can try to do:
swallowed large marshmellow
swallowed large sized bread
drink soft drinks
To help reduce the discomfort in your throat as you wait to go to the ENT doctor, you can drink cold water to blunt the slight pain or discomfort you feel.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
