Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Please don't worry about the after effects of consuming melted plastic because body digestion mechanism is so powerful and it know what to do with those debris. There are very few cases where this went wrong, but limited to vomiting or food poisoning.
Anyway to confirm about your doubts, you might visit a general physician if there is any negative symptoms like purging, colic, vomiting etc.
Get well soon.
