You must call your dr now

they probably have to do an imaging x ray or something

don't just assume it will come out though it might

Is he regular now? its like swallowing a fish bone
Its not dangerous.
There were a few doctors who each swallowed a lego and wanted to see what would happen they are all ok it just passed thru the system

My doctor said to just monitor since it's a very small piece of plastic.

It can pass on its own, or it can c"v puncture something on his insides. So don't assume anything. Call your doctors after hours emergency number and speak to someone over the phone now. Refuah Shelaima!

please call your dr we were just discussing a story we heard about a similar situation the other night

I am not alarmist at all in general too

I am sure this will be fine but please do your part

He's 10. I guess he was eating and didn't realize he swallowed it. My sister's baby once swallowed pins and the doctor took x-rays.
