Doctors treating an Egyptian wife thought of as have been the worlds heaviest before undergoing weight loss surgery said she is suffering from cardiac matters and bed sore infections. Eman Abd El Aty, who left an Indian hospital on Thursday for further therapy at a center in Abu Dhabi, was airlifted from her home with the help of a crane for the March procedure.

Abd El Aty, 36, has not strolled in 25 years and at her heaviest, reportedly weighed about 1,100 pounds. She reportedly had lost more than 660 after undergoing the bariatric procedure, but physicians had warned about future complications due to her weak bones.
