'Heaviest Woman' Admitted To UAE Hospital For Treatment

'Heaviest Woman' Admitted To UAE Hospital For Treatment

In an interview with CNN in 2016, Ahmed's younger sister, Shaimaa Ahmed, told the site her sister had been battling with her illness for over 36 years.

Her next operations will take place in Abu Dhabi, where Ms Ahmed is being taken in an air ambulance, accompanied by a team of nine specialists, including a critical care doctor, paramedics and nurses.

She flew business class to the United Arab Emirates.

The hospital's nursing staff, who had looked after her for 82 days as she first underwent a stringent diet regime before going under the knife for weight loss surgery, said goodbye with flowers.

Abd El Aty's family could not be reached for comment by Reuters after news of her transfer broke.

The Hindustan Times reported that Eman suffered a stroke three years ago leaving the right side of her body paralysed.

She had just been discharged from Mumbai's Saifee Hospital after being admitted in February.

"My only fear throughout has been whether she will go back".

With her weight standing at 176.6 kilograms, Abdel-Ati will now begin a year-long course of physiotherapy at VPS Burjeel hospital in Abu Dhabi, her doctors in Mumbai said.

"I am heartbroken to have Eman leave my care and to be told that I can not continue my treatment of her in phases, as I had planned to". In cases like these, water loss leads to weight loss, says Dr. Lakdawala, and a litre of water lost equals about 1.5 kg of weight lost.

Her family told doctors that as a child she had elephantiasis diagnosed, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell, leaving her nearly immobile.

While the future of Eman's health continues to raise a storm outside, her happy space within the hospital walls inhabits a little tape recorder with Egyptian melodies that both sisters shimmy and shake to when no one's watching.

After almost 83 days of treatment under Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, Chairman, Institute of Minimal Access Surgical Sciences & Research Centre, Saifee Hospital, she now weighs around 171 kgs. But the euphoria quickly subsided when Ahmed's sister Shaimaa, on social media, alleged that Ahmed was not receiving proper treatment at the privately-owned hospital in Mumbai. "In the aircraft, Eman fell into deep sleep despite the noisy cargo flight", she was quoted as saying by TOI. However, she should have some function and the hope is that she will be able to live a life that has a significant element of independence.
