At 170kg, Eman, once known as the world's heaviest woman, is now lighter by over 350kg following her treatment at the Saifee hospital in Mumbai.

The story of Eman Ahmed, who was until recently said to be the worlds heaviest woman and underwent treatment at a Mumbai hospital, has left the Egyptians confused as their initial euphoria turned into disappointment following her sisters allegations against Indian doctors.

Eman underwent bariatric surgery in March in which doctors reduced the size of her stomach by two-thirds, so as to reduce her food intake.

Eman's discharge from Saifee hospital got delayed amid reports that there was some difference of opinion on Eman's handing over to the authorities of Burjeel Hospital in UAE (where she would undergo further treatment).

Eman has suffered a stroke and faced a series of other serious ailments owing to her weight including diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension and sleep deprivation.

Appearing very different compared to her arrival in a cargo aircraft from Alexandria and then hoisted on a crane to go to Saifee Hospital, the 37-year old Eman looked relaxed though a tad bewildered by all the attention.
