Suggest Treatment When Having Food Stuck In Throat

Hi Dr. Andrew Rynne. My husband just got done eating curry with his work buddy at a restaurant. He just called me about a stem or something stuck on the throat it s bothering him. All i told him to so was drink plenty of water to see if it will go away in the next couple of hours. He s thinking about taking a visit to the ER. Before he do, what would you recommend?

Hello,

If something is stuck up in throat then trying to cough up by inserting two fingers in back of throat can help.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
