I can only think of three reasons for the doctor to send OP home with the only instructions being "eat some bread" 1) the doctor was really lazy and/or tired 2) the doctor actually couldn't see the bone because his or her eyesight was failing and he or she didn't have their glasses 3) the doctor thought that pulling out the bone could possibly be hazardous and decided to use a more passive way of dislodging the bone.
47- I'm pretty sure there's a code/oath thing that doctors take in regards to 1. I'd imagine if a doctor needed glasses he would wear them to avoid a malpractice lawsuit in regards to both 1 and 2. And in regards to 3, if he had thought of a more passive way to dislodge the bone, he almost certainly would have told OP rather than say he couldn't see the bone.
I think this guy should sue the living shit out of his doctor I went to my doctor and did some test and he did not even look at the results because that same day he said I was fine The. I went to a specialist for stomach pain and now I'm taken 4 kind of medication because " I did not have anything" now I'm suing
Common thing is to squash up some bread into a little ball and swallow it whole to dislodge anything stuck in your throat. This happened to me once, though. The bread did not work. I turned to the tweezers too :( It really is a BITCH of a thing to accomplish, getting it out of there. What with regular tweezers being shorter than you need as well as all the saliva that just has a party when you have to keep your mouth open for that long. Hahahaha
