FB either in the stomach or upper part of small intestine , only can get obstructed illeocaecal junction if it passes through will come out with stool. Only wait and watch wheather any pain abdomen then should be under close observation. If no pain just to see wheather it has come out or not , finally check cray after seven days.

Such ingested FBs usually pass in the stools . Soft diet, bananas help make stools soft . If pt c/o pain at any time, scan/ xray to be repeated
