You will most likely pass it with a normal bowel movement.  You might have a little tummy ache since it won't be digested at all and will act like roughage on the way through.  It should be minor irritation.  Odds are though, you won't even notice when it!  ;-)

You can continue to eat normally.  In fact, it's best to do so, since it will push everything through you.  

Take care!
