18-Year-Old Girl Has 9-Pound Hairball Removed From Stomach

Ayperi Alekseeva, 18, from the Batken Province in Kyrgyzstan, just endured an ordeal that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. Alekseeva had a disgusting habit of eating her own hair and hair that she found on the carpet. Over the years, the blockage accumulated to the point where she couldn’t eat or drink without getting sick, so her parents took her to the hospital. It was evident that performing surgery was the only option to save her life. The hospital’s senior professor of surgery, Bahadir Bebezov, said, “It was actually the only alternative, nothing else would solve the problem. In fact, her stomach was so badly swollen from hair and bits of wool from the carpet that it literally just oozed out soon as the wall of the stomach was cut.” The doctors were able to safely remove the nine-pound hairball, and Alekseeva is expected to return home shortly. Doctors looked through 50 years of medical records, and they couldn’t find a larger hairball. Here are a couple pictures of the hairball, and they are not for the faint of heart. Unsurprisingly, they are really fucking gross.



Alekseeva has promised to stop eating hair, but after seeing those pictures, I don’t think that a promise is good enough. She needs to sign a contract to legally bind her from munching on her scrunchies, so the world will never have to witness such horrors ever again.
