World’s heaviest woman ‘smiling again’ after weight reduction surgery

Monday, 13 March 2017

Egypt’s Eman Ahmed, believed to be the world’s heaviest woman, successfully underwent weight reduction surgery on Tuesday, doctors in India said.

“She is very happy, she started dancing in her bed,” Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala told CNN. “Her smile has come back.”
Before she traveled to India for her operation, Eman weighed 1,102 pounds (500 kg) and she’d barely left her bedroom in more than two decades, her family said.
Over the last couple of years she’d been confined to her bed after a stroke severely impaired her speech and mobility.
