The Boy Is 16 Years Old
The young boy is 16 years old named Arjun Sah, from India. He had a secret addiction to chewing on shreds of plastic and lumps of wood, and many other things that would keep him busy.
He Suffered From Pica
Doctors claim that the young man suffers from Pica, which is an eating disorder. In this disorder, people are often seen relishing on things that have zero nutritional value. The list can include any of the bizarre things. In this case, it was wood, rubber and plastic!
He Had Complained Of Abdomen Pain
Arjun had apparently complained of severe abdomen weight and he had lost over 15 kg in a week's time. The doctors assumed it to be an ulcer, but the shocking revelation only happened when they inserted a camera into his stomach to find the root cause of his pain.
He Was Operated Immediately
The moment the doctors discovered the actual pain, they did not waste time and instead operated on the boy twice and were able to extract 300 grams of the materials.
He Needs To Undergo More Surgeries
Doctors claim that though they were able to extract 300 grams of the wood from the boy's stomach, there was 700 grams still left inside his stomach and this needed a minimum of 2 surgeries. The boy was lucky enough however to have survived this condition.
