Have chicken piece caught in throat. Have vomited. Should I see a doctor?

Was eating chicken around 6 hours ago and a piece became caught in my throat - around clavicles. Breath fine, heart rate and BP fine, but cannot swallow anything and I m drooling. Able to sleep on side or stomach. Have vomited handful of times - all phlegm . Do I need to seek immediate medical attention or can I see if it dissolves on its own? BTW - has happened several times before but has always self removed quickly.

Thanks for your question
there is a foreign body (chicken piece) lmpaction in throat, mostly at cricopharynx or pyriform fossa
Donot try to vomit or manipulate it, its hazardous
consult to ENT specialist as early as possible
You don't have to worry as its in digestive tract not in trachea
But it needs to remove as early as possible
