Fish bone stuck in throat, bleeding, pricking. X-ray, endoscopy could not locate bone. Suggestions?

Hi, my husband had fish bone stuck in his throat day before yesterday while eating fish, while he was trying to take it out there were few blood drops in the wash basin. He went to a hospital they did xray and endoscopy and could not locate the bone, but he is still having pricking sensation and today also some blood came out. Please let us what needs to be done. I am worried.

If x-ray and endoscopy has not shown the presence of fish bone,it means it is not there.
The symptoms of pricking sensation and droplets of blood are due to the lacerations and micro tears in mucosa of throat.
Had the fish bone been in your lungs,you would have had breathlessness and bouts of violent coughing.
Wait and you shall see the symptoms disappearing over the next few days as the damaged mucosa gets healed.
No treatment is required at the moment.
