Yes it's a worry.Finding can be expensive and it maybe just wear.Can I suggest a strong magnet araldited[spelling] to you sump plug or secured some how, change the oil often for the next week or two.If you have driven it the damage,[obviusly you have?]would have allredy been done if any?.Could be in filter but it would have gone through your oil pump,Oil pressure o/k= don't worry.
Lube on shaft: So long as there is some on first start up,then engine oil takes over.. Grease can clog your filter especially on cold oil..
