Can Chicken Fries Get Stuck In Your Throat
What do I do if I have a small piece of bone stuck in my throat? I was eating chicken and I swallowed a small piece of bone. I can feel it stuck in my throat but it doesn't hurt, it is just uncomfortable and I don't know what to do to get it out.
This: This isn't something you are likely to remove yourself nor should you try. Most sharp thin foreign bodies (whether it be chicken bones, fish bones, etc.) typically lodge in recesses or pouches we call the vallecula (at base of tongue) or in the pyriform sinus (on the side of the voicebox) and, therefore, are usually inaccessible to the patient. You should be seen by an ENT physician for a good fiberoptic exam. If nothing is obviously seen but symptoms persist, we generally recommend direct laryngoscopy and exam under anaesthesia for a better look. Impacted foreign bodies unattended to will incite an inflammatory response and make symptoms worsen over time. ...Read more

I swallowed a small piece of chicken bone lastnite it is in my throat I can feel it whenever I try to hack it up and its not coming out, what to do?
Foreign body: This is a common occurrence for people. Fortunately, most of the time, it is a scratch in the throat that you are feeling and not the actual chicken bone. However, I would recommend that you go to a walk-in or ED, where an X-ray can be done to check for a retained bone. If this is the case, a brief surgical procedure would be necessary to remove it. ...Read more
I have a small chicken bone caught in my throat. When I eat it feels like it is going down.....but later it feels like it has worked it's way back up?
See below: If you indeed have a small chicken bone caught in your throat. It will probably not come back up. You may have scratched your throat on the way down giving you a sensation that the bone is still there. If the bone is small enough it should pass through the gastrointestinal tract and out into your stool. If the bone is larger it can sometimes lead to significant challenges and possibly even surgery. If the discomfort persists I would encourage you to see your family physician. If it's causing acute pain I would suggest you go immediately to the emergency room. Most foreign objects will pass if they're small enough. But be cautious and don't ignore any type of abdominal pain. Thanks for the question hopefully this was helpful to you. If you have additional concerns I can help you with feel free to go to healthtap. Com and type in Steven Ferguson M.D. CMD in the ask box at the bottom of the page. ...Read more

Unlikely to develop: The human system is well designed to deal with scratchy things that invade your swallowing process. The saliva you swallow has many antibacterial qualities that promote healing. Your biggest risk from the chicken bone was if it created a blockage in your airway at the time (uncle died that way).If you are obsessing over this I suppose you are just experiencing part of the learning process. ...Read more

Depends on: How long ago, how severe your pain is, and associated symptoms such as fever, inability to phonate, chest pain, etc. It is unlikely that the bone perforated your esophagus, but certainly possible that it caused a superficial injury. See your doctor to be sure, especially if symptoms are severe or persistent. ...Read more
