What can happen when you swallow a soda can tab and should I see a doctor. I swallowed it a week ago and havent noticed anything in my poo.

How old are you? It is best to see your doctor to find out if it is lodged somewhere in your gastrointestinal tract. Foreign bodies can cause irritation at the place of lodgement in the body.
