NEW DELHI, Mar 19 (Agencies): The world's heaviest women, 36-year-old Eman Ahmed, has garnered worldwide support during her journey towards weight loss.

Having lost nearly 140 kilos after undergoing bariatric surgery in Mumbai's Saifee Hospital, Eman is on the way to a steady, albeit slow recovery.

Unfortunately, there are many obstacles in the way of Eman's weight loss goal. Ailments and conditions like diabetes, hypothyroidism, hypertension and severe lung disease have given way to a right-side heart failure, not to forget the multiple spells of epileptic fits she suffers every day.

An update posted by her doctors on an online portal said, “We are happy to inform you that her post-op recovery is going fairly well.”

Currently down to 358 kilos, “She lost 120kg in less than a month, but that was mainly the fluids,” said Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, who heads the retinue of doctors working to 'Save Eman', the Times of India (TOI) reported.

“The initial weight loss allowed us to operate safely and successfully. The battle is won, but the war is yet to be won.

There is a long way to go before we can say Eman Ahmed is finally out of the woods,” said Dr Lakdawala.

TOI further quoted Dr Lakdawala saying that, “Even deciding her antibiotic dose is a long exercise, involving many doctors. We have to take care that one doctor's prescription isn't counter-productive to another's treatment," he added. "It is a tightrope walk on a daily basis. She is about 30% better than she was.”

Nearly all her organs have borne the brunt of her weight, her obese frame measuring five feet upon her arrival in India.
