Hi,

Im sorry to hear about your husband. Can you specify where does he have pain exactly? chest or abdomen? Any vomiting or breathing difficulties? And what procedure did he have ten years ago?

Since you seem to be offline, ill leave a response which we can discuss later on

Well from what you are describing it sounds as if the plum pit has gotten stuck in his oesophagus, which would cause pain in his chest and upper stomach region. This can also cause burning sensation in the chest or even a stabbing pain in the chest. If this is the case and the pain is worsening with time, then the only viable option would to go to urgent care and have this evaluated. It is even possible that the pum pit rather than getting stuck in the oesophagus, has damaged the lining of the oesophagus which would cause bleeding and pain as well. in most cases this would be treated with drugs like Prilosec but since the pain is severe then he would need IV omeprazole as well as a possible endoscopy to look inside the oesophagus itself.

The fever can indicate that there is development of an infection as a result of this problem and if so that again is an URGENT indication that you need to take him to an urgent care center or the ER for immediate endoscopy and possible removal of the pit. Considering the pain as well as the fever, you should DEFINITELY take him to the ER for immediate evaluation.
