Brief Answer:
No need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Hi....
Welcome to HCM.
Thank you for the query.
I understand your concern.

If the plastic piece that you have swallowed is small then it will be passed out naturally within a week. If it was big, it would have probably lodged in throat itself.
There are no specific set of symptoms that you need to look for in this case.
Kindly relax. I don't think you will get any symptom because of this.
As you have not yet experienced anything there is a very less chance that will get any symptom later on.

Hope this helps.
Take care, Bye.

Regards,
Dr.Deepak
