hello and welcome to HCM,
I have understood your concerns regarding your throat block and pill stuck in the throat.
You must realize that there may be two different problems due to which you may be feeling that the pills are still stuck in the throat. In the first case which is more likely, the pill would have injured some part of the throat but have been swallowed. But due to the injury
you will feel that the pill is still stuck and you may have pain when you swallow. For this you need to take a course of antibiotic like the amoxycillin-clavulanate
625 mg twice daily for five days along with pantoprazole
40 mg twice daily before food for two weeks along with a pain killer. This type of feeling and injury will become better in a week or two. So wait for a week or two and then if the symptoms persists or worsen then get an upper GI endoscopy
and get back to me or an ENT.
In the second scenario which is though rare but still possible, the pill may still be stuck in the throat which has to be removed. Your clue in this case is increased pain and difficulty in swallowing and developing other problems such as fever
and body pain
. When this happens then you must get an upper GI endoscopy and get back to me or an ENT as soon as possible.
Meanwhile avoid spicy, oily food and drink plenty of smoothening fluids such as milk
take care and get well soon
