Pulmonary aspiration - Should i order have bronchoscopy to see if food still there, or not?
This afternoon I inhaled little bits of tuna fish. As a reaction I coughed
rather intensely for a few minutes. I felt relieved,
but did not feel or taste any food come out and it felt there was still
food stuck there.

It's been 6 hours since the incident and my right bronchus still feels as if there is
some food in there. There is a small pain and pressure in what i think is the right bronchus.

This pressure and pain intensifies when breathing and swallowing.
I can breathe fine, but the pain and pressure make it feel like something is still stuck there.

Should I be worried?

Also,
if food would happen to be in there,
and if i don't get pneumonia the first 10 to 20 days or so...
does that mean that (hopefully tiny) bit of food present is no longer a threat?
