HIGHLIGHTS

  • Doctors are not only monitoring her weight but also her poorly functioning lungs
  • Eman Ahmed lost 120kg in less than a month, but that was mainly the fluids

After the operation, Eman Ahmed weighs 358 kg now

Almost every organ seems to have suffered due to her morbidly obese frame that spanned five feet when she first flew into India: The multiple seizures reveal a neurological or brain-related problem; the fluid accumulation in her chest shows how much her chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) has affected her lung’s function; the right side of her heart fails to function normally as is the case with many patients with COPD; and protein still leaks into her urine indicating overworked kidneys.

During her March 7 operation, doctors found her abdomen was filled with fluid, a possible sign of liver failure.A doctor from Chennai was rushed to do a biopsy of the liver but it turned out to be congestive hepatopathy , a liver disorder that usually accompanies heart failure. – Times Of India
