Fish bone stuck in tonsil

Hello doctor, I have a fish bone buried deep in my right tonsil and it is constantly paining. I can see the tip of the bone and can feel it also with my finger. I have visited an ENT specialist twice but despite many attempts he was not able to remove it.

It is best done under short general anaesthesia, when you are completely immobile and surgeon csn easily extract it.

Get it done in a proper hospital with a fully functional ICU just in case something goes wrong.....
