Boy has Lego Piece Stuck in His Nose for Three Years
It’s a fact: kids love sticking stuff up their noses. Nearly everyone has a story about a friend, sibling, or even themselves getting an object stuck in their nose as a kid. But for most people, the object is quickly removed, a lesson about not sticking stuff up one’s nose is learned, and everyone moves on with their lives. This was not the case for Isaak Lasson.
6-year-old Isaak Lasson has had breathing troubles for the past three years. Despite seeing a number of pediatricians and receiving countless prescriptions for antibiotics, Isaak still had a difficult time breathing when he was lying in bed at night. Neither doctors nor the boy’s parents could figure out what was causing his issues.
Until last week, that is, when a doctor found a wheel-shaped piece of Lego stuck in the kid’s nose. Because Isaak started developing his sinus problems when he was three years old, doctors speculate that the Lego piece has been hanging out up his nose completely undetected for three years.
“I asked him, ‘Dude, how did that even get in there?’” said Isaak’s dad, Craig. “We think he bent it in half — it’s pretty flexible — and that it opened up once it got into his sinuses.”
Since the Lego was removed, Isaak’s breathing has been much better and he’s been sleeping through the night. And judging by the pictures of him holding the Lego wheel, Isaak is in good spirits about the strange discovery.
“Isaak thinks it’s pretty cool,” explained Craig. “He said, ‘I didn’t even know . . . this is weird.’”
