Heaviest woman loses 120kg after surgery in Mumbai hospital

Eman Ahmed who has lost 100 kgs since she was brought to Mumbai's Saifee Hospital from her hometown Alexandria in Egypt has undergone her first surgery. She weighed 500 Kg when she arrived in India and was put under the treatment of Dr. Mussafal Lakdawala who had given her a target of 100 Kg before performing the first surgery.

Ms Ahmed has been in hospital since February 10th when she was moved out of her home for the first time in 25 years by removing the wall from her room and a crane lifted out her bed.

Mumbai: Things are set to get even better for Eman Ahmed Abdelaty after a treatment schedule by doctors at Saifee Hospital helped her reduce her weight by 120 kg.

As per the statement issued by Eman's doctors, "Eman successfully underwent a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy on March 7th 2017 at Saifee Hospital".

'Through medicines, we have tried our best to help her lose as much weight as possible, but medicine can't help her reduce weight anymore. She had an uneventful surgery and anesthesia course.

There is no history of obesity in her family, inclining the doctors to suspect a genetic mutation may be responsible for the uncontrolled weight gain.
