The world’s heaviest woman Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty , 36, who weighs close to 500kg, arrived in Mumbai on Saturday to undergo a lifesaving bariatric surgery next month for rapid weight loss.She journey from her hometown Alexandria in northern Egypt wasn’t easy.She searched online and wrote to me, and I felt we had to help her.
Bariatric surgeon Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, chairperson of Institute of minimal access surgical sciences and research centre, Saifee Hospital, speaks to HT on Eman’s surgery and her life before and after surgery. She weighed 498 kg when they weighed her using an industrial scale 15 days ago at home in Alexandria.While we can't judge the entire male species in one country based on a "few," we can get a pretty accurate idea of how most of them are like.I mean seriously, would you want to spend your youthful years searching for the "exception" in a country with a 90 million population? I hate to generalize, but unfortunately, there are some personality traits that are common in almost all Egyptian men.Emam is wider than she is high – she’s is almost 5 feet wide, measuring 151 cm wide (59.5 in, 4.95 ft) and 141 cm tall (55.5 in; 4.6 ft) – and hasn’t been able to even crawl for more than three years. He sister Shaimaa Ahmed wrote to me six months ago and asked for help.She had reached out to doctors around the world on social media a year ago but did not get a great response of the risks involved because of Eman’s excess weight.
