World’s heaviest woman lost over 120kg in a month during treatment at Saifee Hospital
MUMBAI, March 07: Egypt’s Eman Ahmed may soon shed the tag of being the world’s heaviest woman after having lost over 120kg in less than a month.
The doctors at Saifee Hospital, who are awaiting her gene test report, said a bariatric surgery may still be necessary . Ahmed, who had left her home in Alexandria after 25 years and airlifted to Mumbai, has showed remarkable improvement despite suffering multiple strokes in between. Doctors are hoping to find out the reason behind the strokes by next month when she is likely to fit into an MRI machine. The medical team is largely working with portable x-rays currently .
The hospital has passed the primary hurdle of tracking her kilos by installing a new bed fitted with its own weighing machine. Her sur geon Dr Muffazal Lakdawala said that she has entered the league of “300 plus kilos”, much better from her original weight of 498kg. “We are expecting her genetic report by the end of this week. A surgery may follow any time after that,” he said.
