Follow-up: It is possible to get aspiration pneumonia if the food passes into your lungs. If you feel uncomfortable and symptoms persist or worsen I suggest a routine exam at a clinic or office to be on the safe side. A clinician can listen to your lungs and order X-rays of your lungs. I wish you well with your health and I am available for a virtual consult with you about this or other health matters.
