An Egyptian believed to be the world's heaviest woman has successfully undergone weight-loss surgery in India, doctors said Thursday.
In last 25 years, Eman was unable to move out of her house. The rest of the treatment for the medical team will consist in correcting all the associated medical problems and putting her back in sufficient condition so that she can go back to Egypt as soon as possible, "the text continues".
"The medical team of Saifee Hospital successfully performed a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery on Eman on March 7. She's been battling with her illness for 36 years". She had an uneventful surgery and anaesthesia course. "We will attempt to reduce at least 200 kgs in the first six months", Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, bariatric surgeon treating the Alexandria based woman, said.
However, Dr Lakdawala told the BBC in December that he believed Ms Abd El Aty did not have elephantiasis but suffered from obesity-related lymphoedema which causes big swelling of the legs.
Eman who was over 500 kgs when she was brought to Mumbai last month has already lost 100 kgs - mainly body fluids - with the help of medicines and bed-side physiotherapy. Her weight has now been brought under 400kg since she arrived in Mumbai in early February.
Where will QB Tony Romo end up in 2017?
Designating him as a post-June 1 cut would cost the Cowboys almost $25 million, but that money could be split over 2017 and 2018. But this visual of Romo seated to Jones's right, much like a family member would be, showed the Cowboys would do right by Romo.
Indian media reports suggested that Abd El Aty suffered stroke and faced a series of other ailments during the process, including high blood pressure, hypertension, diabetes and sleep deprivation.
Her request for a visa to get to Mumbai was refused at the start, but she then sent a tweet to India's foreign minister, who became personally involved in the case.
According to medical experts, Abd El Aty was born at 5kg at birth and was suffering from a disruption of the glands as well as from a parasite called elephantiasis. "We had to remove her gallbladder as well, as she had 15 stones", he said.
It is increasingly common in India, which has a growing problem with obesity, particularly in urban areas.
