Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  There is a myth that chewing gum if once swallowed stayes in your stomach for about 7 years. But as i said its a myth. You dont have to do anything. Just have a high fiber diet and drink plenty of fluids. It will be fine. Nothing will happen. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
