So ds 12 has swallowed about 2cm box of rubber (I want to mention at this point he's has an asd) he said it hurt going down his throat and he didn't mean to but it feels okay know. I'm going to make GP appot ment to check. But I'm quite sure it will pass through him but what are you're thoughts something that size and of that content what could happen. I know it could get stuck and there's a small chance it could cause appendicitis. So yea what do u think.

has he swallowed one 2cm rubber? i guess it would pass through him, i once swallowed a tooth crown and it came out ( i had to check, it was pretty expensive)

go to A and E, before he eats or drinks anything.

I had to take my baby (8montgs) to a&e for swallowing a piece of cotton (only a small piece off our rug). It was advised by NHS direct. Why don't you ring them? FYI the cotton came about the other end 30 hours later!!

It could cause appendicitis? Eh?

It'll probably just come out the other end, unless he feels it's stuck somewhere.

Oh I see by obstruction.

He feels okay it like a 2cm squared box of rubber his tummy hurts so i might take him to walk in (MIU) and is slighly tender in his rights side!!! Oh no

worriedmother7787 Mon 12-Oct-15 13:16:43

Well to be exact he has a sharp pain in his right lower abdomen (I swear i brought this on!) but it dosent hurt to much. its in the exact place to appendicitis but is only a small pain so i dont think it is

worriedmother7787 Mon 12-Oct-15 13:24:22

I think it might just be going through
