YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY GO TO ER AND MEET WITH GASTROPHYSICIAN AND UNDERGO UGI ENDOSCOPY TO SEE ITS PROGRESS

IF IT IS PRESENT IN THE STOMACH THEN IT SHOULD BE REMOVED BY THE HELP OF ENDOSCOPY FROM ORAL ROUTE

IT HAS HAS CROSSED THE STOMACH THEN YOU SHOULD WAIT AND OBSERVE

ONE THING WHICH CAN BE HELPFUL FOR YOU IS USE OF LAXATIVE, THIS WILL HELP IN EXPULSION OF SWALLOWED HAIR RELAXER.
