Weight-loss surgery for 500kg woman in India

Weight-loss surgery for 500kg woman in India

Ahmed, now 120kg lighter, will soon return to her hometown Alexandria, Egypt, with financial help provided by the online crowdfunding campaign started by her family and Saifee Hospital Trust, where she received treatment. 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.

Her sister had approached Lakdawala, a specialist weight-loss surgeon, in October, saying Abd El Aty needed urgent medical attention.

Despite her weight loss, the Egyptian would still be the biggest woman in the world.

On March 7th 2017, Eman successfully underwent a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy at Saifee Hospital.

The doctor released a statement to say she'd gone through the procedure without issue on Thursday morning, and said she was responding well to the diet of oral fluids the hospital had placed her on. She had an uneventful surgery and anesthesia course.

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 huge swelling of the legs.

Keselowski steals Atlanta win after Harvick caught speeding
His bid to become the first driver to win the Atlanta race three years in a row ended with a disappointing 19th-place finish. He sits first in the standings through two races with 90 points, ahead of SHR teammate Kurt Busch (86 points, second place).

Abd El Aty has suffered a stroke and faced a series of other serious ailments owing to her weight including diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension and sleep deprivation.

A spokeswoman said the weight of the Alexandrian woman had gradually fallen below 400 kilograms since entering the hospital in Bombay in early February.

Abd El Aty had a long wait as no airlines were willing to fly her due to her health complications.

On her arrival, Ms Ahmed's body mass index was 252-ten times the normal limit and water accounted to up to 15 stone of her total weight.

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a stomach shrinking bypass procedure.

It is increasingly common in India, which has a growing problem with obesity, particularly in urban areas.
