Shifting Eman: UAE hospital alleges non-cooperation by Mumbai docs

Ahmed outside the hospital

Eman, believed to be the heaviest woman in the world before she was admitted to Saifee hospital in Mumbai for weight reduction treatment, would now move into VPS Burjeel hospital in Abu Dhabi.

Burjeel Hospital hasn't yet weighed Eman, but will do so before shifting her to room number 528, a premium suite customised for her use.

With the hard part of the procedure over and done with, Abd El Aty must now prepare to finish treatment back in the United Arab Emirates.

When Ahmed's story first made worldwide news, Mumbai-based surgeon Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala set up a fundraiser to fly the patient to India.

Reiterating once again the need for a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to be put in place, Sawant said, "In instances when patients from overseas come to India for such procedures, we need to lay down guidelines and have an SOP in place".

Her family told doctors that she was diagnosed as a child with elephantiasis, leaving her nearly immobile. At the same year, Eman Ahmed also reportedly suffered a stroke, which rendered her bedridden for the next 20 years, cared for by her mother and sister. Eman's sister Shaimaa had earlier alleged that Eman did not receive proper treatment at Saifee, the charge which Dr Lakdawala and others at the Mumbai hospital denied. "Doctors will decide on the treatment plan after assessing the results", said the spokesperson.

Her family told doctors that as a child she was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell, leaving her nearly immobile.

Selim was referring to the day Eman was discharged from Saifee Hospital, when hundreds of journalists were given direct access to the hospital lobby. "I know I'm on the right path and confident that Eman will be able to walk and speak again". "In the aircraft, Eman fell into deep sleep despite the noisy cargo flight", she was quoted as saying by TOI. Born at 11 pounds, Eman Ahmed was also diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition that is characterized by a swelling of limbs due to a parasitic infection.

Her doctor, Muffazal Lakdawala, one of India's leading bariatric surgeons, began by putting her on a special liquid diet to get her weight down to a low enough level to perform a stomach-shrinking bypass procedure.

Speaking to the media on Thursday, minutes after her arrival at Burjeel, Dr. Yassin el Shahat, consultant nephrologist and chief medical officer said Eman arrived safely in her bed at Burjeel Hospital.
