Swallowed Plastic Will
If my son has swallowed several plastic puzzle pieces then will I need to do anything to get it out?
Depends: On how big they are and whether they have sharp edges, and whether he becomes symptomatic with drooling or vomiting or pain. He should be evaluated in your local ER ASAP.

3yr old swallowed sharp plastic shaped in a "t" about 1" x 1.25".Ped said wait till pass. Any danger symptoms to look for?If doesn't pass, tx options?

If no abdominal pain or other difficulty it should pass normally in your stool ...Read more

No fear: Plastics are incredibly inert biologically and all the talk about their "causing cancer" is from scaremongers. The artificial chemicals that really cause cancer are the ones that can mutate dna -- a plastic polymer won't even gain entry to a cell. Tmj can be very troublesome and finding an effective treatment difficult -- i wish you luck and admire your courage in writing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
