New Delhi :  

Eman Ahmed, the world’s heaviest woman with a weight of 500 kg, who has undergone a surgery was moved out of her specially built 1,000-sq ft room into a suite-class room in Saifee Hospital, Charni Road, on Friday night.

According to the reports  a crane was used to lift Eman's bed into the main hospital building. A crane was also used to lift Eman into the specially built enclosure on February 7. 

Eman Ahmed has lost 242kg in the two months after she was flown from Egypt for treatment last month in Mumbai from her Alexandria home in Egypt.

Dr Aparna Govil said Eman was shifted out to a regular room in the hospital building around 9pm on Friday. "She will be closer to other services such as occupational and physiotherapy," said Dr Govil.

"As promised, she has lost a substantial amount of weight. We have completed her obesity treatment, reducing the risk to her life by 60 per cent. The remaining problems are related to her neurology. Now, she can sit up and lean back and continue to be up; she can even sit on the edge of the bed. But she will never be able to walk as her legs didn't develop properly since her paralytic attack at the age of 11," said Dr Muffazal Lakdawala.

"Medically, it is impossible to make her stand. I promised that she would go back to Egypt sitting up on her own, and that she will. "We had decided to keep her in a special room due to her weight. Then, it wasn't possible to move her to the main building. Now that she has lost weight, we decided to move her there."

"We can't afford to send her back to Egypt due to lack of infrastructure there ( which is required for her treatment). There is no proper mechanism to take care of her health. So, until her neurological treatment gets over, we have to keep her here," said Dr Lakdawala.
