Swallowing an object

Swallowing an object

Things to keep in mind

You have to be careful what you put in your mouth because you could swallow or choke on something! It's very important not to put anything in your mouth that doesn't belong there.

How is it treated?

If you swallow something, most of the time it will go through your digestive system just like food and will come out when you go to the bathroom. If this happens to you, make sure to follow a high-fiber diet and pay attention each time you go to the bathroom.

Sometimes an object may get stuck in the esophagus and has to be removed with forceps. It is very dangerous if the object goes into the airway because this is what helps us breathe.

And remember, always ask your doctor!
