Hello

Yes an x ray could miss it.

MRI is the most reliable imaging for silicone.

However, the best course would be a flex sig [scope] to find it and get it out.

In your opinion, is this a likely scenario or unlikely. The x-rays were taken at a hospital and in their opinion, there wasn't anything there. They were "certain" that it would show up if it was there. Also, what if we followed their advice (of nothing being present) but it actually was there. What would eventually happen? How long could it stay in there before causing a medical issue or being passed?
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

It might pass, or it might cause an obstruction.

I would say that if you are certain it was lost inside, then they have made a mistake.

It might take a day, a week, or a month to cause problems.

Additional info...she had 2 x-rays taken from the standing position and 1 laying down. Also, all air-flow was seemed normal and the "gastric valve" showed no signs of an issue (not sure that's the correct medical terminology). I'm not sure what any of this means, but they quoted it as further evidence that nothing is present. Would you agree?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Lastly, she has had bowel movements since the incident occured which I hope is another indicator of nothing being present. Would it be possible for everything to be functioning correctly if the object was still there?
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

There is evidence nothing is present, but it is not certain.

It would be possible to have bowel movements, but it makes the likelihood of the problem less.

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.
