Tampon broke off and am very worried

I woke up not feeling well and went to the the bathroom.  While I was wiping I noticed something was coming out of me.  It turned out to be the tip of a tampon (about an inch long).  I haven't warn one for two or three days.  Am I going to be okay?  Tampons need to be removed after 8 hours and this piece has definitely been in there longer than that.  I didn't even know that it was possible for them to break.

You need to see your gyn to be sure all of the tampon is removed.
