The ‘world’s heaviest woman’ Exactly two months before she was 500kg massive weight now has shed more than half of her body weight.

world’s heaviest womanWoman from Egyptian city of Alexandria Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty weighed 78.5 stone when she was first taken to India for treatment in February.

However it has today been revealed that she has now lost almost 40 stone after successfully having bariatric surgery last month.

37-year-old Eman Ahmed was flown on a specially modified plane to undergo the emergency weight-loss surgery.

Bariatric surgery is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach.

In videos provided this week by the Saifee Hospital, Abd El Aty can be seen sitting up and smiling while listening to music.

A doctor said: ‘She looks a happier and slimmer version of her past self. She can finally fit into a wheelchair and sit for a longer period of time, something we never dreamt of three months back.’

Abd El Aty had not left her home in Egypt’s Mediterranean port city of Alexandria for two decades until she arrived in India’s commercial capital on February 11.

She was put on a special liquid diet to get her weight down to a low enough level for doctors to perform bariatric surgery.

The diet helped Abd El Aty lose around 15 stone in a month, allowing doctors to operate on her in early March.

Abd El Aty’s family say that as a child she was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell, leaving her almost immobile.
