Unhappy My Snake Swallowed a Large Piece of Bedding! HELP!

So I got a corn snake in February (it is now June) and I have not had any problems until today. I was feeding my corn snake and I left him for like 10 minutes and I came back and he had eaten his food but also I am pretty sure he accidentally swallowed a piece of reptibark and it was not a small piece either it looked like it was about 1/2 inch wide and it was sticking out of his neck ( not breaking through the skin ) it looked like it hurt too. This is my first snake so I don`t have experience atoll and I don`t know if he will be ok or not.
After a few minutes, I couldn't see it anymore but I don`t know if it will be a problem... Please Help!

Take him to a local veterinarian, pronto.
