FISH BONE STUCK IN THROAT.
« on: Jan 02, 2014, 06:58 PM »
Ok I just had a few pike fillets and now have a bone stuck in my throat. I tried bread,mashed potatoes, moose steak ,coughing,and water and no go. Anyone got other ideas to help get rid of this tiny little fish bone.

A pair of tweezers and a headlamp.  That's how I removed a bone from my wife's throat while camping on an island up north.

I had that when I was a kid 11-12 and it was right in there ended having to go to the hospital and have it removed by the doctor (forceps) was a terrible experience.  My mom is a former RN and saw that all the time at the hospital, she said bananas seem to work?  Don't chew the banana but bite and swallow small pieces.  Good luck that was one of my worst memories as a kid lol! :)

Went to doctor last night. The bone is still down there. Its to far down to reach. Doc said to drink coke or Pepsi to dissolve it. Its the worst feeling ever.

That's where the wife's was.  If you can get someone to ram some tweezers down your throat, that's the only way to get it out.

When your in the middle of no where and it hurts every time you swallow, you have to go to extreme measures to get it out.

I can appreciate your technique, it just looks funny onscreen is all.  Actually as a father of a 2 year old, it really makes me want to concentrate more on fileting my pike thoroughly and not missing any Y bone ends.  This is very easy to do.

We all remember sitting down with mom and dad eating fish then brushing our two inch high pile of Y bones into the garbage right?  Seems not that long ago.

Glad you got the bone out and informed us on what to do in case it ever happens to us or someone we know.
 

Fishing reminds me of women. Once you think you got it figured out everything changes again!

be vary careful my uncle had had one stuck in his throat it punctured a hole in his esophagus and bits of food got through this hole and basically his whole chest cavity got infected and they had to surgically go in and scrub everyone of his internal organs a surgery that only 9% of people survive. so if you think your having a heart attack be dont blow it off
go hard or go home

 Pike should always be consumed with rum-n-cokes as a chaser to avoid your problem.
