Hello, if it does not struck in your throat and reaches your stomach, your gastro-intestinal system will digest it. Bones are rich source of calcium but they can choke you. Take care.

Hi! As Dr Rohit pointed out, in all probability the bone would have got digested by now. If the bone is not stuck in the throat and goes into your stomach, the acids and digestive juices will act on it and it will then be absorbed along the intestine. Bone is made up of calcium, other minerals, collagen and fibers and human body can digest it without any harm. Take care!

However, on second thoughts, if at all you have abdominal pains, cramps, nausea, vomiting etc, please consult a doctor immediately to rule any intolerance, allergy or impaction (less likely if it was a small wing bone).

This question is open for comments.  Please share your opinion.
