Massive 9lbs hairball removed from teenager’s stomach

Doctors were desperate to diagnose a teenager who couldn’t even drink water without being violently sick, but what they discovered left them stunned.

Medics treating Ayperi Alekseeva found a massive hairball blocking her digestive system. The 18-year-old needed emergency surgery, or she would have died from extreme dehydration and malnourishment.

The hairball, which weighed 9lbs, was formed because the girl chewed the tips of her hair, and even ate hair and bits of wool she found on the carpet at home.

Ayperi, from Batken Province in Kyrgyzstan, had to be transported to a hospital in the capital city of Bishkek for treatment.

Doctors said that despite looking through 50 years of medical records, they have never been able to find a case involving a hairball this large.

Prof Bahadir Bebezov, who performed the life-saving surgery, added: ‘The parents brought her in after she started losing weight, and she couldn’t eat anything. By the time we got her, should could not even drink water. We realised we needed to operate immediately.

‘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 professor of surgery insisted that Ayperi was psychologically healthy, despite her unfortunate habit.

His patient is now recovering in hospital, and will be discharged by the end of the week. She has promised never to chew the tips of her hair again. - Metro UK

100 orgasms a day, this man suffering from Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome

Meet the man who suffers from 100 orgasms every day. We say ‘suffers’, because Dale Decker doesn’t enjoy a single one.

His rare case of Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome developed in September 2012 when he slipped a disk in his back while getting out of a chair.

The 37-year-old said: ‘Imagine being on your knees at your father’s funeral beside his casket – saying goodbye to him and then you have nine orgasms right there.

‘While your whole family is standing behind you. It makes you never want to have another orgasm for as long as you live.

‘There’s nothing pleasurable about it because even though it might feel physically good – you’re completely disgusted by what’s going on.’

The painful pelvic episodes have made Dale housebound through fear of cumming in public – just like the time he had an orgasm in the local supermarket and saw ‘around 150 people looking straight at me’.

Dale lives in Two Rivers, Wisconsin with his wife April and two sons Christian, 12, and Tayten, 11.

While she does everything she can to support him, April, 33, is finding Dale’s condition just as hard to live with as he is.

She said: ‘We really struggle right now as he is unable to work and supply for his family and I feel like all the strain is on me.

‘It’s really upsetting, we don’t do things that man and wife should do and we argue over things that should not be affecting us.’

Despite suffering from a near constant erection Dale and April rarely have sex. - Metro UK
