She has already suffered a stroke resulting in paralysis of her right arm and leg, she can not speak coherently, has Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hypothyroidism, severe obstructive and restrictive lung disease, gout and is at a very high risk of pulmonary embolism. Her flight was for a duration of 5 hours and it took 40 minutes to unload her from the cargo plane, said a Saifee hospital attendant. "We will perform a sleeve gastrectomy operation, " said Dr Lakdawala, who travelled with Eman and her sister Shaimaa from the airport in a truck.

Egyptian artisans created a special bed for Ahmed at Saifee Hospital in accordance with the safety requirements laid out by EgyptAir for her safe transportation on ground and in the aircraft.
However, she was later granted the visa after her surgeon Lakdawala tweeted to Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj about Abd El Aty's condition.
After hearing about her case Dr Lakdawala had offered to carry out the procedure free of charge.
Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, 36, who weighs 78 stone, had not left her home in Alexandria for 25 years as she was unable to move from her bed because of her enormous size.

Special arrangements, including a special room with a broad doorway and a special intensive care unit, have been made at Saifee Hospital to house and treat Eman.
She later suffered a stroke and was rendered bedridden, triggering a series of ailments including diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension and sleep apnoea.
