Egypt’s Eman Ahmed, believed to be the world’s heaviest woman, successfully underwent weight reduction surgery on Tuesday in India.
Before the surgery Eman weighed 1,102 pounds (500 kg). The poor woman was confined to her bed after a stroke severely impaired her speech and mobility. She barely left her bedroom in more than two decades. The result was devastating. The doctors who consulted her in her home country were unable to help her. There wasn’t any hope for her until her sister campaigned in social media.
Dr Muffi Lakdawala agreed to give the girl a second chance in life.
