Not quite a lie, more like simplifying for a child

Swallowing gum over time can cause a blockage in your intestines and cause you to get well beyond constipated, as such you won't have anything exiting there (and it will make you quite sick)

I have known people who needed a doctor to go in there to clean out all the gum stuck to their intestines!

So I wouldn't classify what your mom said as a lie, she just simplified it for a child's understanding


Makes sense.

It was hilarious anyways though, I was bawling my eyes out and thought I was going to die.

You might bawl out your eyes to prep for the procedure! (trust me not pleasant!)
