Eman Ahmed, 36, had weighed 78 stone but doctors reduced her stomach by 75 per cent in the operation at Saifee Hospital in Mumbai in India two days ago. Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, who previously weighed more than 1,100 pounds, was flown to Mumbai last month from her home in Egypt, which she had not previously left for the past 25 years.

Doctors from Saifee Hospital confirmed Ahmed underwent a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, a surgical weight-loss procedure that reduces the size of the stomach to 15% of its original size.

Lakdawala's team has revealed that Eman is now on oral fluids and is accepting them well.

'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.

Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty underwent weight los surgery this week.


It was revealed that Eman "had an uneventful surgery and anaesthesia course".

Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, the bariatric surgeon treating Eman, said: 'We thought she would lose around 50kg, but we are surprised to observe that she has lost more than 100kg.

Her family told the doctor that as a child she was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell, leaving her nearly immobile. According to the team of doctors, Egyptian women weight had been brought under 400 kilograms since she arrived in Mumbai in early February.

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.

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.

Weight has always been a problem for El Aty.

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is used as a last resort to treat people who are dangerously obese and carrying an excessive amount of body fat.
