Eman Ahmed 37 with Dr Shamsheer Vayalil during her birthday celebrations at Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi

According to doctors, the Egypt-national who initially weighed around 500 kilograms when she arrived in Mumbai in February was quickly recovering. Eman was suffering from underlying comorbid conditions including heart and kidney dysfunction at Burjeel Hospital. Before her trip to India, Eman's family used to take care of her. After having the treatment in Mumbai, she almost loses 300 kg of weight.

Eman's pillar of strength, her sister Shaimaa Selim, is inconsolable. Earlier this month, the hospital released a photo of Abd El Aty celebrating her 37th birthday. Also, she weighs 5 kg at the time of her birth according to her parents.

Following the surgery, Atti's family fell out with doctors in Mumbai and requested she be transferred to the United Arab Emirates and Abu Dhabi's Burjeel hospital. The doctor intended for her to lose another 155 to 175 pounds, then the plan was to then send her home to Egypt and schedule a second surgery for next year.

She underwent bariatric surgery - which often involves the fitting of a gastric band or the removal of a portion of the stomach - and was put on a liquid diet. They say she had been heavy from the moment she was born, and she lost the ability to walk when she was just 11.

After 17 years of her age, Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty did not step out of the house.

"We never thought something like this will happen to her".

"We are providing full support to her family".

Dr. Mufazzal Lakdawala, who headed the team of doctors that treated her for obesity at Saifee Hospital, was unavailable for comment but expressed his condolences on Twitter. She had been bedridden for 25 years because of her weight, which doctors blamed on a thyroid condition.
