Usually these pass off without any consequence, especially if these do not have any sharp edges.

Many gastroenterologist would like to take a x-ray and see if it is in stomach; they would try to remove it endoscopically.

But since it is already an hour, there is a chance that it may have passed in the intestines.

I saw the pictures; this should pass off without any problem.

No worry.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
