Eat bulky foods

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

Eat more of bulky foods like bread, rice , banana at frequent intervals and also drink more of water at frequent intervals . These will help to dislodge the capsule to stomach.

If the condition persisit for more then 24 hours then I suggest you to consult a gastro specialist and get endoscopic removal.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil
