Question: I think I may have
swallowed a piece of glass after drinking out of a bottle. The rim
appeared to be missing after I took a drink and I did not feel anything
hard but I am worried that it may have gone down with the soda. I
have pain in my stomach but I am not sure if its psychological or
real. Please tell me what I should do or if I should feel anything.
Answer: Dear Noeleen,
If you swalloed a piece of the
bottle, it may pass through a bowel movement in a couple days. If
it is in the stomach , it could be seen through an x-ray. In this
case, a doctor would need to extract it.
