Doctor finds 100 bubble tea pearls in girl's abdomen: reports

The girl, 14, was reportedly addicted to bubble tea.

A 14-year-old girl in China who was constipated for almost a week had an abdominal blockage caused by undigested bubble tea pearls, according to reports.

Bubble tea is a popular Taiwanese tea-based drink, often topped with chewy tapioca balls.

According to reports, the girl told her parents that she only drank one bubble tea drink five days before she was taken to the hospital.

Imagine it being you out there. "This is the World Cup, not a rec league tournament", she wrote. It just became an exercise in target practice", he said. "Pull it back, knock it around".

However, doctors believed the girl was concealing the depths of her bubble tea habit to avoid getting in trouble from her parents. A CT scan later revealed over 100 undigested boba pearls in her abdomen.

The girl, known as Xiao Shen, had become bloated, was complaining about severe stomach pain, was struggling to eat and had not gone to the toilet in days.

In addition to adding calories to the drink, bubble tea pearls - which are also known as boba - can be hard for the body to digest because they are made out of starch, another doctor said, according to Asia One.

The girl was ultimately given laxatives to relieve her symptoms, Asia One reports.
