Woman who tipped scales at 500kg loses half her weight in just one month

- An Egyptian woman was, until one month ago, the most obese female in the world

- But now, after a life-saving surgery she managed to lose more than 200 kilos

- Her doctor called the intervention a complete success

Eman Ahmed was until recently the world's fattest woman, at more than half a ton. This Egyptian woman nevertheless embarked upon a life-saving trip to India back in February, in order to undergo surgery that would allow her to lose around 200 kilos.

She has a condition called elephantiasis

Ahmed has a condition called elephantiasis. She did not leave her house for almost twenty years, and in order to be transported to India, a special modification had to be done to the airplane that flew her, and a crane to lift her.

The 36-year-old’s doctor, Muffazal Lakdwala, first put Ahmed on a strict liquid diet, in order for her to lose around 100 kilos before the intervention. That first phase lasted for about one month.

At last, Ahmed had a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in March, and has now reached a weight of 260 kilos.

“The extent of the post-surgical recovery was beyond my expectations,” Lakdwala said, adding that “the weight loss has also dramatically improved her health. Eman's heart, kidneys and lungs are functioning better and her water retention levels are under control.”
