A special facility is being build up by Saifee Hospital at Mumbai’s Charni Road for the world’s heaviest woman, 500-Kg Egyptian Eman Ahmed, who is scheduled to undergo bariatric surgery at the hospital.
As per the report published in a leading daily, Saifee Hospital at Charni Road in Mumbai has begun building a special facility for the world’s heaviest woman, 500-kg Egyptian Eman Ahmed, who is scheduled to undergo bariatric surgery at the hospital.
The 3000 sq ft facility – comprising an operation theatre, a dedicated Intensive Care Unit, a doctors’ room, an attendants’ room, two restrooms and a video conferencing room – is being constructed on the ground floor behind the hospital’s main wing.
The hospital is spending close to Rs 2 crore to build what can be described as a “one-bed hospital.” Everything here is being designed with Eman Ahmed’s weight and frame in mind – from extra wide doors to a 7ft by 7ft bed.
Eman Ahmed, 36, has not been able to step out of her home in Cairo in 25 years. Her inability to move out of the bed has spawned a clutch of associated ailments like diabetes, asthma, hypertension, pulmonary problems, and depression.
A tweet on Eman Ahmed's condition by Dr Lakdawala has spawned an online campaign to raise funds for bringing her to Mumbai. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who responded to Dr Lakdawala's tweet, has promised all help in bringing Eman Ahmed to India.
