How can earrings be removed from the stomach?

Yes...I just took my Pm meds. Then I went back to get a glass of water for my room. I had taken off my stud earrings and had them in my right hand. Went to the frig April, got ice and then water. On reflex I put what was in my right hand (earrings) into my mouth, took water and swallowed. As soon as I did...I realized what I just did. 1/4 studs with back attached. What do I do now?

Hello !
Thank you for asking HealthCareMagic.
I have gone through your question.
You need to go to the hospital , the doctor will do s ome examiantion ( x-ray, ultrasound ..)to find out where the earing is .
Acording to the result of examiantion will be decided for further intervention (gastroscopy..).
It's important to find out where the the earing is to prevent any complications ( damage of your stomach, bowel...) .

Take Care !
