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

Eventually Ms Ahmed lost the strength to move on her own and was bedridden for 25 years.

Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, 36, a resident of Alexandria in Egypt had not left her house in nearly 25 years until she arrived in the Indian financial hub, Mumbai in February, for a bariatric surgery.

It may be recalled than Eman's weight was around 500 Kg, when she had arrived in Mumbai last month.

"She is very happy, she started dancing in her bed", Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala told CNN.

Eman's sister approached doctors in India in October 2016 stating that Abd El Aty needed urgent medical attention.

"Eman successfully underwent a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy 7 March at Saifee Hospital".

The Egyptian is still believed to be the world's heaviest woman ahead of American Pauline Potter who the Guinness Book of World Records recorded at 293 kilos in July past year.

The excessive weight that Eman has gained over the period of two decades, has caused her to suffer many physical stresses confining her to a room which she hardly left. As a child she was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell, leaving her nearly immobile. Doctors had suspected that her obesity is linked to one or multiple genes of the 91 which are known to be connected to obesity.

Shen she arrived at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport she was transported to Saifee Hospital for the surgery on a truck in February.

Eman was initially refused a visa for India because of her inability to get to the embassy in person, until the process was expedited by India's external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.

Bariatric surgery is a procedure that reduces weight loss by restricting the intake of food the stomach can retain.

At birth she weighed 11 pounds at birth and doctors diagnosed her with elephantiasis - a condition in which limbs or other body parts swell drastically due to a parasitic infection, her family said.
