Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Tampon if left behind can get infected and lead to the symptom like you have.

The generalized fatigue and the gastric upset could be secondary to the infection caused by the tampon.

Since the tampon is removed, you can take Ibuprofen for period of three days to get rid of the symptoms you have.

Hope I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

No, there is no need for you to visit your doctor again.

You can take Tab Motrin 400mg twice daily for three days and also consume energy drinks to maintain energy levels and hydration.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
