I am 76, suffering shingles pain and rash and taking frequent medication daily. On day 3, I accidentally swallowed a hearing aid battery, not concentrating, when my aid battery ran out. I took the sticky label off and with water, swallowed it. It is day four now. I am so anxious and the hospital doctor says to wait up to seven days! I am so afraid. I am checking every motion extremely carefully, four to date. I am using Laxido but feel Fybogel might be better, so will try that.
