Thanks for posting your query.

If you had swallowed a fish bone and can still feel the fish bone then you need to get an urgent ENT check up done. Depending on the position where the fish bone is lodged, you may need an endoscopic removal of the fish bone for which you have to consult an ENT specialist or a gastroenterologist.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.
