In brief: Chicken bone

Can that chicken bone hurt your stomach? It's possible, but the acidity of your stomach should dissolve it.


Your next question should be is the pain getting better or worse. If getting better, then I wouldn't worry about it. If getting worse, better go back to your PCP and tell him about it.

It might not be the chicken bone. It can be something else i.e. ovarian, kidney stone, colon
