4 Lb Chalky Hairball Removed From Girls Stomach
A girl in India had a four pound hairball removed from her stomach by doctors in Indore, a city in western India.
Reports suggest that the 19-year-old girl had a habit of munching her hair – and chalk – during class hours, said the Daily News.
The surgeon involved in the case said that it was a rather rare case of something – in this case, chalky hair – getting stuck between the stomach and the small intestine.
The obstacle likely caused the girl serious pain and an inability to eat.
