When a fish bone sticks in your throat, what do you do to get it out? In China, there are some ways. First, drink vinegar. Many people believe that vinegar can soften the fish bone and then you get easily get it out. As for the reason, vinegar contains acetic acid. However, the doctor warns that drinking vinegar is no use because the density of the acetic acid in vinegar is only 3 percent and it can't soften the fish bone. Second, eat some rice to force the fish bone go to your stomach. But it is also not effective.

Do you have some other good ways to get the fish bone out of the throat?

Prevention is better than cure, by this I mean dont eat fish bones in the first place.

It might be just an " old wives tale " but drink orange juice as the citric acid will move the fish bone, I have done this myself and it works.

Really? Orange juice tastes sweet rather than sour. I haven't tried it before.

I eat fish very carefully. But the fish bone still stuck in my throat sometimes.

Many restaurants in China serve freshwater fish, which has many little bones. When one is not careful, the bone may got stuck in one's throat. I prefer ocean or marine fish, not only it tastes beter, more "meat" but has larger bones which are quite seldom to get stuck in the throat when eating.

Hehe, I usually try to eat something else to force the fish bone go to my stomach when it is stuck in my throat. In most cases, it works well.

If you can't figure out a good method to get the fish bone out of your mother's throat, better go to see the doctor as soon as possible.
