Dip stick broken

Hi guys

I tried to search forum but havent found anything...

I just found out that my metal dip stick broke and part of it is in engine
It was not a original part, and I assume 4cm of that stick is inside.Last time I checked my oil (around 10days ago) everything was fine,so maybe I even drove like that for few days.

Can I drive my car now and what will happend if I do and how to get it out?

Anyway,I'm gona answer to my question by myself,maybe it help someone in future.

My mechanic told me I was very lucky for not screwing my engine.
The part of dipstick which broke finished in a fuel pump and lucky stuck there.If it has gone further I whouldnt had my engine anymore.

So if you have the same situation get it out as soon as possible and dont drive your car...
