'World's heaviest woman' leaves Indian hospital after surgery

The whole episode of this hapless patient from Egypt smacks of a high profile PR exercise gone horribly wrong

The doctor said that Shaimaa insisted she had wanted the hospital (Saifee) to keep Eman till she could walk and the management said that was not possible because of the advice they had received from one the foremost orthopaedic surgeons in the country.

She suffers from a range of health problems including elephantiasis, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell.

"She slept well and woke up today morning with a smile", doctors treating her at Burjeel Hospital, told Khaleej Times. Her discharge from the hospital took longer than expected due to what seemed to be discrepancies in how authorities had to handle Eman to caregivers from Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi.

Mumbai: Once dubbed the heaviest woman on earth, Egyptian Eman Ahmed Abd-El Aty left India after losing over 50 percent weight - for further treatment in Abu Dhabi, officials said on Thursday.

"We have already started medical examination and are conducting various tests that are crucial for her assessment", a spokesperson for the hospital said on Friday.

She has left for Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, to receive further treatment.

Mason had also undergone gastric by-pass surgery in 2010 initially, and lost 628 pounds.


A green corridor was created for transporting Eman from Saifee Hospital to Gate No. 5 of Terminal 2 at the airport.

"She will need multiple surgeries to straighten her hips and knees", he wrote in the blog post. "Eman was in tears when she suddenly saw so many people", Ms Selim said.

Previously, Shaimaa had yelled at Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, Ahmed's concerned bariatric surgeon, and the hospital, blaming them of giving her sister medicine overdose to make her brain dead.

Her family told doctors that she was diagnosed as a child with elephantiasis, leaving her nearly immobile. "Doctors will decide on the treatment plan after assessing the results", said the spokesperson. She also accused the hospital of exaggerating Abd El Aty's weight loss and claimed she was suffering seizures and was not stable enough to be moved.

"She will have doctors, paramedics and nurses with her during the journey". From breaking down a wall in her house to have her lifted out of the room using a crane to chartering a special cargo plane fitted with medical equipment to fly her to Mumbai from her home in Alexandria, Egypt, for her treatment - none of this was without risk.

"When she was brought here, she was not even able to pass through the CT scan machine".
