Heaviest Women in the World Undergoes Successful Bariatric Surgery in India
The Egyptian who weighed almost 500 kg and was possibly the world's heaviest woman successfully underwent a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery on March 7. "She was so happy at being able to shake her body", said bariatric surgeon Dr Muffazal Lakdawala under whose watchful eye Eman is being treated.
Eventually Ms Ahmed lost the strength to move on her own and was bedridden for 25 years. She had to be taken out of the house with a crane and flown to Mumbai, India on a modified Airbus that was outfitted with safety gear like a defibrillator and a portable ventilator, Fox News states.
Doctors are also hoping to better understand how Abd El Aty came to be so heavy, reports the BBC.
On March 7th 2017, Eman successfully underwent a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy at Saifee Hospital.
The doctors are hopeful that she'll loose around 150 kgs before they carry out her next weight loss surgery.

Suffering from a thyroid problem, the 37-year-old Eman gained enormous weight, which made it impossible for her to move.
"We are trying to get her fit enough to fly back to Egypt as soon as possible", the hospital said in a statement.
"In Egypt, Ahmed's diet primarily consisted of a couple of chicken sandwiches and custard, as per her current diet chart set by Nutritionist, Carlyne Remedios, Eman receives 200 ml feeds every two hour starting from 6 am to 12 midnight".
Second only to Abd El Aty is American Pauline Potter, who the Guinness Book of World Records recorded at 293 kilos in July a year ago. Her sister and mother attended to her at all times. As she grew older, she suffered from severe illnesses like diabetes, hypertension and high blood pressure. "She had an uneventful surgery and anaesthesia course", a health update said. As a child she was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell, leaving her nearly immobile. This was later granted after a tweet pleading for help was sent directly to India's foreign minister, who intervened.
Despite undergoing the Bariatric surgery, which is a stomach-shrinking bypass procedure, she remains the world's heaviest person on record.
