There is a small possibility that the tampon is still inside. Only is the tampon get lodged deep inside the pelvic cavity is that possible. Usually it doesnt happen because the tampon get 'swollen' after it absorbs fluid.Hence it cannot move inside. But that depends on the how swollen it is. Hence rare chances are that it may have become deeply lodged. Complications can occur if gets infected/foul smelling odor. If your'e still in doubt have a doctor do an examination.
