Swallowing a Soda can tab

Dear Ask The Doctor:  I swallowed a soda can tab. What should I do ? I feel fine it's been two hours now. Do you think it will pass ok. Should I wait to see if I have any pains.

Dear Patient:  I would not rush to see a doctor. small objects such as soda can tabs pass without incidence.  You should only be concerned if you start to develop symptoms of fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, or red or dark .
Any of the above symptoms could indicate damage to your intestinal tract and would require prompt assessment in the emergency room.
