Heaviest Woman in the World Cargoed To India for Weight Loss Surgery
Weighing over 500 kg, Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty has been documented to be the "world's heaviest" woman today, and she has just been cargoed via a special Egypt Air Airbus 300-600 cargo airplane to India where she is scheduled to undergo weight loss surgery.
Thirty-six-year-old Eman Ahmed is from Egypt, and her arrival in India over the weekend for bariatric surgery marked the first time in 25 years she would leave her bed back home in Cairo. She was reported to have weighed 5 kg at birth and later diagnosed with elephantiasis, which must have been responsible for her extreme obesity.
A team of medical specialists which comprised of a consultant bariatric surgeon, a cardiologist, an endocrinologist, and a cardiac surgeon among other were hand-picked to work on Eman. Meanwhile, her doctor Muffazal Lakdawala who will lead the bariatric surgery team was on hand to receive her at the airport together with a number of people, the Hindu reported.
Special arrangements made for transporting the patient
To facilitate moving her from the airport to Saifee hospital near Charni Road where the weight loss surgery will be conducted, special arrangements were made to ensure that Eman was comfortable all through the journey and that traffic routes did not pose a problem in any way.
To this end, a modified freight truck which carried her, and a police jeep, an ambulance and the vehicle of the Consul General of Egypt were all on hand to accompany Eman on the 110-minute journey from the airport to the hospital. Eman's sister, Shaima, traveled with her for the medical operation and the convoy took the easiest routes to get to the hospital. People who are morbidly obese are prone to various illnesses.
Doctors reported Eman was full of smiles as she cleared arrival procedures at the airport and the open truck that was to ferry her to the hospital waited briefly for reporters to take a few photographs before the journey began in earnest. In fact, the truck maintained a safe 40 kmph since it was fairly early in the morning on Saturday and traffic was light.
It could be up to one month before the surgery is conducted
On getting to the hospital, a crane was deployed to lift Eman's bed from the truck and place her on the parapet of a storied building from where she was pushed into a private ward already prepared for her. Fresh flowers had been placed to decorate the ward courtesy of the hospital's management and it was evident Eman appreciated all the gestures extended to her.
The whole surgery procedure is planned to be filmed and video recording equipment is already being assembled. Her surgery is not starting anytime soon. It could be nearly a month from now. The reason for this is because Eman's medical history is not available to the doctors and she needs to be examined anew with series of tests run on her before a date could be given for her surgery. Doctors also said she must lose some pounds before she is prepped for surgery to increase chances of success.
