She is under the overall supervision of Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, chairman, Institute of Minimal Access Surgical Sciences & Research Centre, who is assisted by a panel of doctors. "She had an uneventful surgery and anaesthesia course", a health update said. They want to correct all her medical associated problems and make her healthy before she travels back to Egypt. Doctors suspect that her obesity is linked to one or multiple genes of the 91 which are known to be connected to obesity.
According to medical experts, Abd El Aty was born at 5kg at birth and was suffering from a disruption of the glands as well as from a parasite called elephantiasis.
By the time she was 11, her weight had risen sharply and she suffered a stroke which left her bedridden and led to diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension and sleep apnoea.

The bariatric surgery, which shrinks the stomach and is used as a last resort to treat people who are dangerously obese, took place Tuesday.
