Dr Ayedh Al Qahtani, a consultant endoscopic surgeon and the medical team head, said that Khalid’s condition was stable and that he had undergone a successful surgery two months ago.

The patient has been following a strict diet at the King Fahad Medical City to help 610kg Saudi man lose weight, he added.

Reports in Saudi Arabia in August said that Khalid, 20, had been unable to leave his bedroom for more than 30 months. In early 2013, King Abdullah ordered Khalid’s transfer to the medical city in Riyadh, but the move from the southern city of Jazan could not be made until a special bed was made for his treatment in the capital.
