If the screw is gold And hoping that foreign body doesn’t get stuck in your upper airway and food pipe The FB will be found in your stools which i recommend to check for confirmation Any retained FB in the body esp in the upper airway and food pipe area will develop an abscess which would manifest in 48 hours
Next Steps
I recommend checking your stools for 2-3 days
