When should I seek medical care for rectal foreign body?

ANSWER

Seek emergency medical help if you think you have a foreign object stuck in your rectum, especially if you have belly pain, bleeding, or fever.

A hospital emergency room is probably the best place to go. It's likely that most doctors will not have the equipment in their offices needed to safely remove the object.
