To the people that had tricho bezoar removed

Hey peeps

i started about 3 years ago with pulling mustache hairs, from there it spiraled something about playing with the hard hairs in my mouth kept me going. I have eaten them in the beginning stage then tried to spit out as many as I could because I found out that eating these hairs can do serious harm now I’m having stomach like hurting here and there it since yesterday could be because I had eaten a lot of salt that day so could be a stomach ulcer? I don’t know if that’s the right translation but I’m a bit paranoid it could be a bezoar and I really don’t want a big scar from the operation


but to the point people that had tricho bezoars removed what were the symptoms you had when going to the docter? 

thanks for reading.

I'm not a medical professional, but I can offer some guidance. 


I understand your concerns and anxieties about the potential risks associated with consuming hair. It's entirely normal to feel this way when you're experiencing physical discomfort and have questions about your health.

If you're experiencing stomach pain and are concerned about potential health issues related to the consumption of hair, I would encourage you to seek advice or consult with a healthcare provider. They can perform the necessary tests and examinations to determine the cause of your symptoms and recommend appropriate treatment.
