You're going to die.
Things could be worse.
My nephew (now a 40 year old cop) at 17 lodged a quarter in his esophagus while playing a particularly stupid drinking game.
Upshot: he scarred his esophagus, and now regularly presents himself for a procedure in which his esophageal tissues are stretched with a balloon device similar (though not in scale) to those threaded into plaque-ridden coronary arteries and inflated to restore flow.
So be at peace, knowing there is an acutely uncomfortable procedure available if you develop difficulty swallowing.
No, no--don't thank me.
