There’s a chance I swallowed a small 3/4 of an inch stapler

So I was eating an apple and I was using a stapler before and I felt something in my throat. I tried getting it out but nothing came. And my parents made me feel like it was just a part an apple seed, so I drank water and I’m fine, but I’m still worried.

Ok, so you can get an X-Ray to make sure, that’s really the only way to find out. If you feel that you did, give your doctor a call and explain to them what happened. The doctor will probably prescribe you antibiotics after the X-Ray in case the staple caused some small cuts.

If it passes with bowel movement you will be fine.

Ok thank you for the response, but it’s been 2 hours. How long will it take to come out the other way if I swallowed it?

Ok thanks for your time!

Wait one more thing I stuck my finger in the place where it hurts and there’s nothing at the moment.

I recommend you see your doctor about this issue as the staple can cause internal damage if it doesn’t pass.
