    Re: 5 year old pull tab, by far, best ever.

    diver* would explain a lot -- its a disease of the colon -- basically its a constantly infected set of bowels --and often causes major problems, massive painful cramping , bleeding and pain -- often folks are told to do massive changes in their lifestyles by their doctors to help stave off attacks -- no nuts or corn, or other foods that might "hang up" and lay off fatty foods and booze (basically eat healthy, soft easy to digest foods ) -- its often cause by poor diet and geneic problems -- in some of the worse cases -- they lop out a chunk of your colon -- not fun --- so get it checked out and take better care of yourself --

    Re: 5 year old pull tab, by far, best ever.

    When my son was 3, hes now 5, he swallowed a penny. We didn't know it at first cause he couldn't tell us much. It also didn't seem to bother him. We would go out to eat and he could drink and eat any type of soft foods but when he would eat solids he would eat like crazy and then puke it back up. This went on for several months. We would take him to the Dr. and they would say he has a synus infection or some other type of infection. He took lots of medicine to get him over this "infection". We finally had enough and took him to a 3rd Dr that tried to get a MRI done but we couldn't get him to drink the barium. So we went to Cooks Childrens hosipital in Dallas. They thought he had acid reflux so they ordered another MRI. We physically held him down and forced the barium down him. Once they took the scan they found that a penny was lodged sideways in his throat. My temper instantly went through the roof. We had been going to the docs for about 4 months and this whole time my son had a penny lodged in his throat. The littlest thing could have caused him to suffocate. They did emergency surgery and got it out. They were afraid that his throat had grown around the penny. If this happened then they would have had to cut his throat and do reconstrutive surgey to repair it. Luckily this wasn't the case. Needless to say this could have been lawsuit city but I don't believe in that. We just told the other doctors where to put our bills and if they didn't like it, then we would consider a lawsuit.

    I guess the moral to the story is you might want to get it checked out by many doctors because in the end it may cause more damage than originally thought.

    This is also the most expensive penny I have bought.

    That's exactly right! That's why they call it "Practicing Medice" because half the time they don't have a clue. Seems like a lot of wasted time spent in school on the doctors part and a lot of big money spent on doctor bills on the patients part for them to just be practicing. LOL!! That just makes everyone big ole lab rats.
    Just kidding. Even though there's a whole lot of quacks out there, I've met some goods ones as well.
    Good Luck to ya,

    Re: 5 year old pull tab, by far, best ever.

    " there is no way a swallowed pull tab could be causing you troubles after all that time"

    not so. a tab could lodge anywhere such as the appendix, or in an area of blockage caused by some anomally in the digestive tract. and besides, the detector sounds off as a pull-tab,so something is there.
    take care & hang in there hmmm,

    We think what we seek is in the ground
    but where our heart is
    there will our treasure be found, for
    If you count blessings of freedom & health
    good friends and fond memories
    you have true wealth.

    Re: 5 year old pull tab, by far, best ever.

    Not metallic, but my uncle fell asleep with a toothpick in his mouth. He swallowed it and it worked its way into his intestine. It eventually went through the wall of his intestine and into his abdominal cavity. It worked its way down into his leg, where it finally got infected. Long story short, our local surgeon operated on his leg for an unknown infection, and removed a toothpick! My uncle made it into several medical textbooks thanks to that toothpick. Nothing is too outrageous to be real. He is now 80+ years old and still going, even though he is operating on 1/3 of a heart, with an abdominal aneurysm and several other things that should have killed him years ago. Bless his heart! Anything is possible.

    I swallowed my diaphram turkey call a couple of years ago.
    Now every time I fart it sounds like a turkey gobbling.


    Very embarrassing.

    I remember watching an episode of "House" a few weeks ago where there was this patient that had internal bleeding and the doc's were stumped, until they found the toothpick that was inside and poking every now and then to cause the bleeding. I know the show was fiction but I thought it was possible, and you have confirmed it.

    I think anything that goes in and does not digest or come out has a chance of causing trouble.

    I swallowed a pen once. I remember the doctor telling mom to make sure it passes or it could get stuck and cause problems. He said to check for bleeding because as it went through it could scratch something. So you never know.

    Re: 5 year old pull tab, by far, best ever.

    speaking of colons...a couple of years ago my spousal unit had to have a colonoscopy. As he was in recovery the doc gave me an update, instructions for when hubby is home along with 2 color photos of the SU's colon.


    I thought about it and ALMOST made one of the colon shots the front of our X-mas cards that year with the caption, "Deck the bowels"
