Accidentally swallowed metal

I accidentally ingested small sharp metal fragments that were in my smoothie.  I have some different prickling sensations in digestive tract, and also in random parts of the body. Pain in urethra. Is it possible the fragments got through to urinary system? Is it possible they got into the bloodstream?

I had an x-ray, and am scheduled to get a CT scan in a day and a half.
