(Scroll down for video) A rubber wheel got stuck up the nose of a little boy, and it remained there for years, causing the child to suffer from difficulty in breathing and a loss of appetite.

The Utah child, can now breathe better and smell again after a toy rubber wheel that was housed up his nose for three years has been removed.

The constant congestion and snoring in the nose of Isaak Lasson, 6, baffled his parents and doctors, until an ear, nose and throat doctor, slid a camera up the nose of the child to find a stuck toy.

"There was a fungus ball," said Isaak's father, Craig Lasson.
Inside the ball was a wheel the size of dime coin, part of a toy.

Isaak admitted putting "some spaghetti in his nose that had not come out," his father said, but "We had no idea what it was or where it came from."

The wheel is now treated as a trophy, sitting in a container above the family fridge, and "Isaak thinks it's great. He wants to show to all his friends," said his father.

His son also has more energy and a better appetite, because now he can smell his mother's meals, his father said.
