Last Wednesday my 4 year old shallowed a quarter. Brought him right down to er. Took an xray and within a half hour of him shallowing it the quarter was in his stomach. We called our family dr the next day and was told to went 5 to 7 days before coming in to get another xray. So for the past week everytime d/s went to bathroom, we went through it looking for this quarter. D/H got sick one day looking for it...lol So we went back to dr today for another xray hoping that maybe it can out and that we just missed it. Did xray and the quarter is still in d/s stomach. Dr called specialized and I was told to wait another month and come back for another xray.If it doesnt pass in the month, then they will have to remove it for him.
