Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, if it was sharp, then you should not delay and rush to ER ASAP.

Sharp objects or objects with jagged edges can get caught and damage tissues.

Doctor would advise for X-ray to check position of this beer tab.

You should not try to vomit it up.

This can cause

It could cause more damage on the way up than it would coming out the natural way.

When you try food, start with bread. If it become hung up the starches can be dissoved by enzymes normally found in saliva. If swallowed well, a normal diet is safe.

Most foreign bodies will make it to the stomach with no problem and are usually passed in a normal bowel movements in 3-4 days.

I would suggest you to get it checked in ER ASAP.

Hope this helped
