Hospital trying to get Eman fit to flyPor Fresco Pimienta Mar 20, 2017
Mumbai: Egyptian national and erstwhile heaviest woman in the world, Eman (36) - who underwent a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy on March 7 at privately-run Saifee Hospital - is still struggling with her post-operative recovery.
"The weight loss is mostly because of rapid water loss, but she is now able to sit up with support. Her diet is administered via a feeding tube". According to her dietician, Dr Carlyne Remedies from the Centre for Obesity & Diabetes Support (CODS), "Eman has been now put under a two-hourly liquid feeding regime from 6 am to 12pm. We expect no major surgical intervention in the near future", said Dr Lakdawala.
She is being fed low-sodium protein powder mixed with soya milk. Her total daily caloric intake is approximately 1800 calories and total daily protein intake is approximately 200 gms. Nearly 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. She has done extremely well post surgery but continues to remain on tube feeds because of a difficulty in swallowing fluids. However, her diuretics treatment and protein therapy continue despite challenging levels of uric acid. "There is a long way to go before we can say Eman Ahmed is finally out of the woods", said Dr Lakdawala.
"Physiotherapy and stabilising other medical and hormonal factors are continuing to get her fit to fly safely back to Egypt as soon as the team deem fit", said Dr Lakdawala.
