World's fattest woman loses 18 stone in just THREE weeks before surgery

Doctors from India said on Thursday that Egyptian woman, Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, had successfully gone through a weight-loss surgery that reduced her stomach by 75 percent. Doctors treating Eman plan to make her lose 200 kg in six months.

The 36-year-old woman has lost 100kg since arriving in India in January. In March 2017, she flew from Egypt in a special cargo aircraft to get admitted in Mumbai's Saifee hospital, as part of a weight loss programme. Eman's starting weight was 500 kgs, it was 488 kgs when she reached Mumbai and its 380 kgs now which may reduce more after the surgery.

"She is very happy, she started dancing in her bed", Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala told CNN.

Abd El Aty will be monitored at home before the next surgery.

Abd El Aty's doctors say she is now able to sit up and will be able to return to Egypt after several months of monitoring and physiotherapy.

USDA Confirms Bird Flu Found at Tennessee Chicken Farm
The farm housed roosters and hens that produce fertilized eggs which hatch into "broiler" chickens raised for their meat. Minnesota, the country's top turkey producer, and Iowa, the top chicken-egg producer, were the hardest-hit states.

Shen she arrived at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport she was transported to Saifee Hospital for the surgery on a truck in February. She is now placed on oral fluids at the hospital and her body is accepting them well.

A spokesperson at the hospital said: "Eman successfully underwent a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy".

Eman had suffered from thyroid problems since she was a child, but it wasn't until her stroke that her weight bloated to more than 1,000 pounds and she really began to deteriorate. Her sister and pillar of strength, Shaimaa, stands beside her, playing music on her phone, cheering her on. The next phase of her treatment will involve looking after the associated problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension and sleep deprivation. Eman's initial request for an Indian visa was denied, but a plea through Twitter led to involvement of India's foreign minister, who intervened, and eventually she was granted the visa.

Ahmed also had her gallbladder removed, "as it had stones and could have created trouble later", Lakdawala told the Times of India. Back home, her diet consisted of a couple of chicken sandwiches and custard. It was the first time that left her room after 25 years.

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a stomach shrinking bypass procedure.
