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.
