Prayers, Thoughts, and Hopes Needed.

I guess that anyone can use this thread down the line, but my son has stuck either a metal ball or bearing or earring up his nose. My wife and I have tried to use a combination of of magnets and tweezers to remove it. He was just moving aroung too frantically and it was too deep to remove it. My wife just rushed him off to the hospital to get it taken care of. Being that a lot of us have seen the worst outcomes from some of the simpliest things I was hoping for some sort of support because I am freaking out.

This has happend to one of my daughters before and we were able to get it removed ourselves. This is much worse and much deeper. This is my only son. So if you pray or hope or whatever...my son needs it right now.

DONE, Prayers for your child and for your family.
It is the job of the parent to fear for their child AND we all do. I am sure the Docs will view this as a minor thing and have him fixed up shortly!

Re: Prayers, Thoughts, and Hopes Needed.

They went through his ear to pop it out.

This was not your run of the mill foreign object up the nose. My son was bleeding, screaming and moving around frantically. It took all my might to hold him down and see what was up there. I could not hold him down long enough to attempt a rescue. Like I said I have seen an object up the nose before...I have 4 kids. This was different. I thought that it was a small metal object of some sort but it wasn't, it was a flippin beed the size of a pearl. It is out and he is doing better now.

This may seem like nothing to some people and in retrospect I may have been over reacting. Regardless I would like to say thanks guys!

Re: Prayers, Thoughts, and Hopes Needed.

Damn, that sounds hair raising. Glad he's okay Angry. Sheesh.

My mom and dad had two kids- me and my little bro (4 years younger). We were both super active and into sports and all kinds of outdoor activities. We each took multiple trips to the ER as youngins. I can only imagine the anxiety.

Sounds like you need to make a trip to your basement and put away 8-10 Coronas.

Re: Prayers, Thoughts, and Hopes Needed.

You act as if I'm stupid enough to make this up. The doctors went through the ear. I am not a specialist and would have never concocted this method.



Quote:
In the Ear: Objects in the ear can be removed by flushing the ear canal with sterile water or saline or using suction, forceps, or other tools. Doctors may remove an insect by putting a topical anesthetic or mineral oil in the ear, which kills the insect, stops pain, and makes removal easier. Younger, more frightened children may need to be sedated or to be given a general anesthetic for these procedures.

Sharp objects, such as pencils, can pierce (perforate) the eardrum. Perforations require evaluation by an ear specialist, but most heal by themselves over time without loss of hearing.

In the Nose: Objects stuck up the nose are of particular concern because they can block the airway, cause infection, and be difficult to remove. Children are often scared to admit they put an object in their nose. Many parents become aware of the problem only when a child's nose bleeds persistently, is runny, or has a foul-smelling discharge or when the child has difficulty breathing on only one side of the nose.

Doctors use a topical anesthetic and attempt to remove the object using suction or forceps. If these measures do not work, doctors may need to sedate children or give them a general anesthetic to remove the object.
