Hello Ursula.

Thank you for this brilliant thoughts. I think you are right, totally depends on the case. If there are persistent symptoms then it would definitely move forward your decision to do to surgery.

I often see cases that have eaten a variety of chicken bones (that are asymptomatic) for endoscopic retrieval. I think many of them could be left alone and would dissolve just fine.

Scott 🙂
