Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, who is considered to be the heaviest living woman in the world and who came to India from Egypt as a 500 kg person, has now lost 100 kgs in the course of her treatment at a hospital in Mumbai.
On Tuesday a surgery was performed on Eman which would help in restricting the amount of food intake. Pictures taken of her before and after the surgery shows a huge difference.

She had an uneventful surgery and anesthesia course. She is now on oral fluids and accepting them well. The future course of action for the medical team working on her will be to correct all her associated medical problems, to get her fit enough to fly back to Egypt as soon as possible."
Sleeve gastrectomy involves removing most of the stomach, limiting the amount of food you can eat. Doctors treating Eman plan to make her lose 200 kg in six months. The doctors were surprised at the speed which Eman lost weight just with a good diet as they were aiming to lose 50 kgs in 25 days. But Eman lost 100 kgs in 25 days after which a sleeve bariatric surgery was performed.
Eman will soon be sent back to Alexandria and kept under observation until she returns back for the next procedure. Eman's starting weight was 500 kgs, it was 488 kgs when she reached Mumbai and its 380 kgs now which may reduce more after the surgery.
