Thirty-six-year-old Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, the world's heaviest woman from Egypt has successfully undergone a bariatric surgery in India.

The world's fattest woman, Eman Ahmed, who had arrived in Mumbai last month, had lost almost 100 Kg.

Abd El Aty was flown to India on 11 February after her sister approached Lakdawala, a specialist weight-loss surgeon, in October.

Abd El Aty is expected to lose more weight in the coming months.

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

She successfully underwent a Laparoscoic Sleeve Gastrectomy and is now being monitored for further weight loss before going back to Alexandria, Egypt.

The doctors are awaiting the results of the genetic tests for 36 monogenic disorders to find the reason behind her obesity.

"Her parameters are all stabilized, kidney is much better, electrolytes are much better", he said, adding that they had a "window of safety" to perform the surgery - a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. 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.

Her request for a visa to get to Mumbai was refused at the start, but she then sent a tweet to India's foreign minister, who became personally involved in the case.

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