15 medical experts await world's heaviest woman in Abu Dhabi

Egypt's Eman 'world's heaviest woman' moved to UAE after India surgery

The authorities of Saifee Hospital, where Eman - once dubbed the world's heaviest woman at 500 kg - lost 300 kg after bariatric surgery, said that nobody from VPS Healthcare, Abu Dhabi, visited or contacted them to oversee the arrangements to fly the Egyptian national to Burjeel Hospital, where her treatment will continue.

It is unfortunate that despite dedicated efforts of doctors her sister Shaimaa Selim made wild allegations that she was not getting proper treatment at Saifee Hospital and the family chose to shift her to UAE against medical advice.Such an attitude must has been demoralizing for the treating doctors and other staff must also be feeling let down. Sources within the hospital said Ms Ahmed (36) would be moved out by Monday or Tuesday.

A doctors team from Saifee will brief the team from VPS Burjeel about Emans current medical status, he said.

Dr Shajir Gaffar, CEO of Burjeel Hospital, Dubai and Northern Emirates, who is accompanying the team, said, "In Abdul Atti's case, we will employ a multidisciplinary and integrated approach (for her treatment) that will go far beyond surgery for weight loss".

The disagreement soon turned into an ugly spat, and Ms. Selim chose to shift Ms. Ahmed to Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi after consulting doctors there.

"We have a number of specialised rooms at Burjeel medical facility where Eman will be treated for neurological and physiological rehabilitation", said Meyer. "As of now, I would say health and safety is our priority". Her attending nurses, hospital staff and other caregivers are yet to come to terms with this. The experts of that hospital will decide what's next. He described Eman as an inspiration to critically obese persons around the world and added that they wished her well. "When Eman arrived here she had a couple of disorders like hypertension, diabetes and her kidney was not functioning normally. Now, I have successfully done my job, we have stabilised her other ailments and I can now treat 100 Emans and despite controversy I can handle 100 Shaimaas (Emans sister) as well", he said.

Dr Shamsheer Vayalil, chairman and founder of Burjeel Hospital, flew to Mumbai with his team of ICU intensivists, specialists and paramedics and is now on ground coordinating the logistics of the evacuation. Burjeel hospital has said that they would extend both physical and psychological rehabilitation to her.

"Eman used to always smile whenever she saw Dr Lakdawala".

"A special hydraulic stretcher is imported from Italy to transport Eman", said Meyer. "I hope that she will stand on her feet and start walking".
