Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Greetings,Thank you for your question. I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
When did it occur?
How is he feeling now?
Thank you for the input.
When he does not feel any discomfort, I feel it has passed the throat to the stomach.
However, he needs an examination by doctor.
Doctor can take an X ray to confirm the location of coin.
Sometimes, it can get lodged in esophagus without symptom.
Usually the coin passes out along with stool by 2-3 days but it may take longer.
You have to check his stool regularly to find out it.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
