To avoid the media pressure, Ladkawala's team waited for a day before announcing any details. Later Ladkawala revealed that Eman "had an uneventful surgery and anesthesia course" and is currently on post-operative care.
Eman, 36, who is a resident of Alexandria in Egypt, has been restricted to bed since she was 11 due to her weight.
The doctors have said that Eman is now on oral fluids and is accepting them well. And for now, the focus is on correcting all her associated medical problems.
"The future course of action for the medical team working on her will be to correct all her associated medical problems, to get her fit enough to fly back to Egypt as soon as possible. The patient is now in post-op care and we will share more updates in due course," the hospital said.
With the help of bariatrics surgery, in one year, patients can lose up to 75 per cent of their body weight. Doctors are now working on making Ahmed lose around 200 kg more in the next six months so that she can sit up.
Eman's sister, Shaimaa Selim had contacted Lakdawala who later studied Eman's condition before treating her.
Eman was brought to Mumbai in a customised Egypt-Air flight after one of the walls in her house had to be broken down and a crane had to be used for lifting her.
Eman was granted visa after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj stepped in.
