Accidentally swallowed a few chunks of glass approximately 21 hours ago. Ate bread right after. No extreme pain. Still major cause for concern?

In brief: Should be OK

If it was 21 hours ago- odds are everything should be fine as the glass has passed through your stomach.
Now simply watch for pain and any blood in your stools. Also drink plenty of fluids to keep things moving through as quickly as possible. If you have severe bloating, any bleeding in your stools- you should give your physician a call.

In brief: WOW !

I am concerned but I am reminded of the guy at the side-show who eats light bulbs.
Depending on the size and shape of the glass shards you may be O.K.If larger than pencil eraser i'd seek medical attention.
