Foreign Body in the Nose Prognosis
Most people have no long-term consequences from having an object in their nose. The prognosis may be affected by any of the complications, however. The most serious complication - choking - is rare but can be life-threatening. For this reason, trying to remove the object at home is not recommended if such attempts may push the object farther into the nose.
