What could be the results of accidental intake of melted plastic ?

I microwaved a Chinese takeout container with soup in it. I think the plastic may have melted but I ate it anyways and I m worried it coated my mouth throat and stomach

Dear sir

I dont think it will have too much impact on you.. some times it wil go undigested and excreted.. it depends upon the size also

Secondly it might cause corrosion of gastrointestinal mucosa causing gastritis and esophagitis..

It is better to confirm the size and volume of it once again
