  • The procedure of foreign body removal is a medical operation to take out the objects that have been accidentally entered into the body. These foreign bodies can be anything from the small ones like splinters, glass shards, or metal fragments to the larger ones like fish bones or swallowed items. Although some foreign bodies may not be a threat at first, others can be very painful, infectious, or even cause blockages. Quick removal is the key to avoiding complications and ensuring the safety of the patient.

    Symptoms

    • Pain and Discomfort: Pain that is intense or continuous at the place where the foreign body is stuck.
    • Swelling and Redness: Inflammation around the affected area is sometimes accompanied by fever.
    • Infection Signs: Pus, pain, and fever are some of the symptoms that indicate an infection.
    • Breathing or Swallowing Difficulties: Foreign bodies in the airway or esophagus may cause problems with breathing or swallowing.
    • Bleeding: Visible blood, particularly if the object has caused a wound, is one of the most obvious signs.
    • Impaired Function: The main feature of this type of injury is restricted movement or use of the injured body part.

    If you encounter any of these symptoms, you should not delay in consulting a doctor.
