Answer to your Health Question

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. Thanks, Noeleen

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.
