You would know it's stuck in your throat: If it was stuck in your throat, you would have pain in your throat, and it would feel like something's not going down completely. So that's good. The gastritis may or may not be related to that. Chances are higher if the bone was small enough, and it's in your food, and passes out of your body as stool, you should have no problem.

When i swallow food/drink , i feel pain in my esophagus  close to where my rib cage separate.  Like the food is trying to go down through a tiny hole.

Maybe that's problem: "transfer dysphagia" is a problem moving the food bolus from your mouth to the top of the esophagus; "transit dysphagia" is a problem transiting the food down the esophagus. Motility studies (modified barium swallow with speech therapist; esophageal manometry) ; GI imaging (endoscopic or radiographic) may identify problem. Sometimes, just esophageal spasms can make swallowing feel difficult. ...Read more
