Swallowed a little piece of glass!

Well, today is Friday the 13th and obviously REALLY not my day as I am already in a state worrying that I have DVT....

Anyway, such a dumb accident, but I broke a wine glass over the counter and didn't realise that there were shards of it at the bottom of a glass of juice I was drinking. I saw the pieces at the bottom of the glass when I got to the end of the drink and of course freaked out. I actually took glue and put the whole wine glass back together to figure out if I had swallowed any. The only glass missing is about half size of my pinky finger. So I may have swallowed a piece that size or perhaps smaller. I've already read that the body can deal with pieces of glass this size. Any advice to make me feel better so I don't fixate on this all night?? Thanks....

Hiya hun

If it was going to cause a problem then it would have done so by now! Chances are that piece didn't land in the glass but outside on the counter.

Honestly don't worry over it!

Thanks so much for all your replies. You made me feel so much better. Nothing ever did happen and I am fine. The body is an amazing thing - I have to remind myself of that.

Re: Swallowed a little piece of glass!

god wish i had come on to this page yesterday. i found a piece of glass in my lunch yesterday, know idea where it came from as i had cooked from scratch the day before and was reheating for lunch. so as you can imagine instant panic incase i had swallowed any little bits that i hadn't felt in my mouth when eating. ended up in a & e after talking to nhs direct, saw the nurse who said it shouldn't cause any problem if i had would normally pass through ok and if there was any causing a problem i would definately know. so anyway after a worried night i am still here and ok, but i might have been a bit more reassured if i had seen this post from you all yesterday.
