Patient : I swallowed a small retainer plate this morning, and can feel it working its way through the system. I am not having any noticeable trouble breathing, but was wondering if I will be okay sleeping on my back overnight. I won't choke will I?. I have a check up tomorrow morning with my regular doctor.
