So recently my multivitamin has been coming out whole (I have since switched to chewables). It made me think, how big does something have to be to cause a blockage? Becuase I would think that a multivitamin is pretty big, and felt no problems with that. Are things like lettuce and skins on fruits a problem because they build up and create a sort of "wall"? Like if you just ate like ONE grape or a little bit of lettuce would it be ok? Because that could never get as big as a multivitamin. I'm confused, and perhaps overthinking this.
