4-pound hairball removed from girl's stomach
19-year-old girl had habit of eating her hair in class
Doctors in India removed a four-pound hairball from the stomach of a 19-year-old girl.
The girl went to Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital in Indore, India, last month, complaining that she hadn't been able to eat or drink for a few days, the New York Daily News reported.
Upon examination, doctors found the huge hairball wedged between her stomach and small intestine.
Turns out, the girl had a habit of eating her hair and chalk in class.
Surgeons were able to remove the hairball, which was hard and caked in chalk, and the girl is now doing fine, NDTV reported.
No word on whether her parents have forced her to get a haircut.
