What Do I Do If I Swallow a Fish Bone?

What to Do If You Swallow a Fish Bone

Over the weekend, my guy and I were enjoying a salmon fillet with soy glaze that we'd made together for dinner, when he got a small pin bone stuck in his throat. I told him I had the perfect solution for his problem, and it wasn't the water he was pounding. Instead, I brought him a soft piece of bread.

When a fish bone gets lodged in your passageways, the best remedy, I've found, is a small chunk of bread — it surrounds the bone, helping to move it down. Of course, if you have serious, persistent pain, seek medical help. You don't, after all, want to wind to wake up weeks later, like a Taiwanese woman did, with a pointed object piercing the side of your neck!
