Eman Ahmed, the Egyptian national who came to Mumbai’s Saifee Hospital for weight loss surgery has lost 242kg, which is almost half her initial weight. Ahmed, believed to be world's heaviest woman had not left her house in 25 years, until she came to Mumbai in February. Her doctors released a video of Ahmed's weight loss since her bariatric (weight loss) surgery on 7 March 2017.

The 36-year-old had suffered a heart attack three years ago which left the right side of her body paralysed. Doctors are now focusing on the possible neurological scarring from that stroke on her speech and movement.
