Re: What would happen if you swallowed a bit of plastic
My hubby once ate a few tines of a plastic fork...they passed with a little help from some fiber supplement. To be exact...Psyllium husk fiber, which is a dry powder you mix with cold water, and drink a few times a day. It is available in any grocery store. If you cannot poop with that, you might need a laxative to get things moving.
If you should experience pain, fever, or bleeding...of course go to emergency.
