Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!Can you please give me an idea of how big Duncan is in size?
I am definitely concerned about this chess piece not being able to pass through the small intestine without causing an obstruction if he didn't chew it at all and would consider an x-ray tonight to determine if he did in fact ingest this chess piece. If so, they may be able to use an endoscope or camera into the stomach to retrieve the piece and avoid surgery versus waiting until tomorrow when this option may not be viablePlease let me know how else I can assist you both today
