Isaak Lasson, who for more than three years has been suffering from awful sinus problems, can actually breathe easier now that the problem has been fixed. While it may have been easier if he was actually sick to diagnose his problems, it finally came to light what was wrong. Lasson had a Lego lodged in his nose for more than three years.
Lasson’s father said that more than three years ago his son Isaak started having breathing problems. The doctors after his sixth birthday were doing an exam when they noticed a funny looking object in his nose. It turned out to be a wheel shaped Lego piece
Isaak’s father Craig Lasson told KSL-TV,
“I felt so bad. Isaak “was sleeping with his mouth open, trying to breathe. We think he bent it in half — it’s pretty flexible — and that it opened up once it got into his sinuses,”
Up until this point, every doctor that had examined Isaak had prescribed him antibiotics to help with the condition. Last week when they had gone to another doctor he saw something foreign in Isaak’s nose and decided to ask the child if he had ever put anything up there.
Isaak had told the doctor,
“I put some spaghetti up there, but that was a long time ago,”
They did not find the lost spaghetti but a big ball of fungus surrounding the Lego piece.
After the removal of the Lego piece, Isaak’s father is proud to report that his son is breathing and sleeping easier but at the same time is trying not to feel like he is a bad parent.
