Teen hospitalized after 100 boba balls were found undigested in her stomach

Local News

With bubble tea being a popular drink in Hawaii, it’s important that you drink it in moderation. 

A 14-year-old girl in China was recently hospitalized after suffering from constipation for 5 days. 

According to local reporters, her doctor performed a CT scan over her abdomen and found about 100 undigested tapioca pearls. 

The girl was reluctant to answer questions about her boba-eating habits, but doctors say that the pearls can be difficult for the body to digest because they are made of starch.
