Don’t eat hair from your mom’s hairbrush

‘This is what I found in someone’s stomach. Before surgery, I wasn’t quite sure what was going on until I found this big hairball in his stomach. He also had a small bowel obstruction from another hairball that had broken off and migrated downstream (aptly named Rapunzel syndrome). Post op I found he’d been eating hair, even sneaking it out of his mom’s hairbrush.’
