Hello

I am Doctor Thomas, double board certified doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine. I will start by asking you a question or by giving you an answer based on your information provided so far. I will be here to follow up with any further questions or concerns you might have.


You can not.
If it is really stuck, you need a professional scope and careful removal

Perforation of the esophagus is possible, and dangerous.


I suggest that you have someone take you to the emergency room.

This is not a self help or home remedy situation.
