Answered by Dr. Abhijit Deshmukh 4 hours later
Brief Answer:
Hello needs urgent medical attention

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM
Thank you for your query
I understand your concern
You need emergency medical assistance
Visit your nearest hospital with gastroenterology and surgical facilities
It can be removed with various methods depending upon the exact position and nature of rod in intestine
I think it can be attempted to be removed with endoscopic guided assistance and if necessary surgery may be needed
Do not attempt to remove it yourself as if might injure your intestine needing emergency major surgery
Hope this answers your questions
Wish you a speedy recovery
Happy to help
