Nothing they can do 'til it comes out the other side is my motto.

How big was it?

Can she show you size with a range of different sized ojects? Could it have been a coin?

Where did she find it? In the garden? Kitchen? Lounge?

They can't do anything until it comes out...but there are some things which are more serious (e.g. magnets, toxins).

If it isn't making him feel poorly then I would let nature take it's course.

panic over. 2 and a half hours in a&e and an xray - she swallowed a bell from a toy. made a great picture though and had the nurses puzzling! moral of the story - when things come loose get rid of them!!
