I accidentally had a tic tac go down my windpipe

Patient : I accidentally had a tic tac go down my windpipe. Is there any danger?
Symptoms:  None
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. I think that you can have an obstruction of the windpipe. This is especially possible if the tic tac gets covered with mucous and then blocks the windpipe. See a Doctor and then you can get a bronchoscopy to remove the tic tac. This will help you to breathe better and recover. Hope this helps you. All the best.
