Customer Question
My adult son choked...

My adult son choked on rice and chicken. Spit up saliva for 2 hours. Feels like something is stuck in esophagus. We don't know what to do. Thank you.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Just can't get food lodged in esophagus to be relieved.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. Super healthy.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
He can try to take something which can stick & carry it down.
He can take banana, white bread.
Those would push down if any piece is still there.
Please tell him try to drink plenty of fluid like plain water.
It would have a soothing effect.
Liquid antacid can also give relief.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

Wish him healthy life.

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.
