Yes, if swallowing..: is a problem, she continues to complain of pain in the chest in the region of the breast bone, the narrowest area of the esophagus, or she has any problem with breathing. Usually a marble will pass via the stool in a few days. Consult your doctor if the marble was actually magnetized or was a coin shaped battery, which could cause complications.
