Thanks for the question. I would like to have few important details. You have any discomfort right now or any shortness of breath? Any difficulty in speaking or any nausea, vomiting? Have you tried to eat any thing or difficulty in swallowing after that?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No nausea/vomiting. Not tried to eat, I'm afraid that would get stuck too. My voice is hoarse and although I can speak, it is uncomfortable. No shortness of breath. hurts to swallow.

Thanks for the details. I would like to say that the best course of action is to take bananas if available at home. You don't have any shortness of breath so this means its not in the respiratory pipe. I will still suggest to visit ER for examination of throat under direct vision and they will also remove the amoxicllin pill in case if it is really stucked in the throat as most of the time it is due to sensation. Let me know if you have any further question. Best wishes.
