The heaviest woman in the world underwent successful weight-loss surgery, doctors announced Thursday. Eman had come to Mumbai on February 11, for her bariatric surgery at Saifee hospital.

The doctors have said that Eman is now on oral fluids and is accepting them well.

"We are not sure how long that will take". And a special truck was used to ferry her from the airport to the Saifee Hospital in Mumbai where the weight loss surgery was performed.

During the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), about 75 per cent of the stomach is removed leaving a narrow gastric "tube" or "sleeve" for digestive food.

She was flown on an EgyptAir Cargo Company aircraft, onto which she was lifted by a crane. She has also undergone bariatric surgery, which was successfully conducted on March 7, 2017. He said he did not think Eman Ahmed actually had elephantiasis from childhood, but suffered from obesity-related lymphoedema which made her legs to swell uncontrollably, the BBC reports.

She is likely to lose more weight in the coming months.

And for now, the focus is on correcting all her associated medical problems.

Asked about the effect of so much weight loss on her body and muscles, he said, "We are well aware of impact on the body of a patient when a lot of weight is reduced in a short period of time".

Abd El Aty had a long wait as no airlines were willing to fly her due to her health complications.

The world's heaviest woman alive just set a new record as the first woman to have shed over two hundred kilograms after a risky surgery that drastically cut her weight down. Doctors had suspected that her obesity is linked to one or multiple genes of the 91 which are known to be connected to obesity.

Her request for an Indian visa was initially denied, but she was granted passage after tweeting a plea for help directly to India's foreign minister, who intervened.
