AFP reports that the "world's heaviest woman", Eman Ahmed from Egypt, has shed half her weight - around a quarter of a ton - in the two months she's been in India for treatment.
Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty weighed some 500kg before her emergency lifesaving surgery.
The world's heaviest woman, Eman Ahmed from Egypt, was flown to an Indian hospital in Februaryafter an eminent Mumbai-based surgeon, Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala, succeeded with his fundraising initiative in order to fly Eman to India for treatment. "She can finally fit into a wheelchair and sit for a longer period of time, something we never dreamt of three months back", said the hospital while releasing the live images of Abd El Aty after her 250 kg weight lost surgery.
In videos provided this week by the Saifee Hospital, where the 37-year-old successfully had bariatric surgery last month, Abd El Aty can be seen sitting up and smiling while listening to music.
Many doctors had reviewed Eman's case, including in Greece, but she had continued to gain weight, making her medical condition more critical still.
"We will get a CT scan of her brain done as soon as she fits into the machine". The hospital is now attempting to procure the drug from a USA based pharmaceutical company.
Media quoted family members of Abd El Aty as saying she has not moved out of her house for 25 years.
"However, as a result of the stroke that left her right side paralysed, she still develops occasional seizures despite being on medication for the same".
She is cared for by her mother and sister.
She has since lost the title of being the world's heaviest woman to America's Pauline Potter who reportedly weights 293 kg.
Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is used as a last resort to treat people who are dangerously obese and carrying an excessive amount of body fat.
