Swallowed a nickel Mama Rice 34 kids; North Las Vegas, Nevada 11980 posts

My nephew swallowed a nickel 4 days ago (not in my care and I don't even really know how he would have gotten it and why he would have swallowed it at almost 4). It hasn't passed and my sister took him to get an X-ray. It is still there. He has until Sunday night to pass it or he needs surgery to remove it.



Any advice on food that will make him poop more?

oh yeah! my daughter got into the box, thinking they were just granola bars. later, we were at an amusement park and she's like "ohhhhh my belly" and had explosive diarrhea. i thought it was the amusement park food, or maybe the pepperoni pizza we had earlier. but i got home and saw 5 fiber bars missing and was like :shock: lol. she learned her lesson!

Anything with fiber in it. Apples can be a good source or any fiber one products I would think he would probably eat pretty easy.
