18-year-old Ayperi Alekseeva from Kyrgyzstan had the country's doctors gasp in amazement with her completely unimaginable suffering.
The young lady was taken to hospital after complaining about stomach pains, and told the doctors that it was almost impossible for her to eat and drink.
After an x-ray of her stomach, they discovered a large blockade which immediately had to be removed.
Doctors could then pull a massive hairball of almost four kilograms out of the teenager, who had an explanation as to how it had been able to grow so big.
- In fact, her belly was so swollen because of the hair and wool from a carpet, it began to leak out as soon as the abdomen was opened up, Bahadir Bebezov, consultant and professor of surgery at the hospital in the town of Batken, said to Australian News.com.au.
The young woman has recovered completely after surgery.
- Psychologically, the young lady is in perfect health if you look away from the habit of collecting hair from the carpet and eating it. She also gnawed tips of her hair, Bebezov says, and has checked Kyrgyzstan's medical files, and concluded that it is the biggest fur ball ever to be removed in the country.
Ayperi Alekseeva has promised doctors that she will end her hazardous eating habit.
