I'm not sure on what to tell you on the retrieval of it (other than going to the ER )...but in all cases, you are going to want to get it out even if it means an embarrassing trip to the doctors...if left in place, it can cause infection and possibly TSS (toxic shock syndrome) which is a systemic infection that can be fatal. Have a blessed & Merry Christmas :-)
