- Eman Ahmed has not moved out of her house for 25 years
- A special bed was made for her transfer, her flight was fully equipped
- She will be kept under observation for a month before undergoing surgery
Ms Ahmed, who has not moved out of her house for 25 years, would be under observation for about a month before she undergoes surgery, doctors said.
She is currently under the care of a city-based bariatric surgeon Muffazal Lakdawala, and his team of doctors.
The doctors have been treating Eman for almost three months and took all the necessary precautions needed for the transportation of bed-bound Eman from Egypt's Alexandria city.
"Even though transporting Eman to Mumbai was a challenging task keeping in mind the complexities of her case as she is a high risk patient who has not been able to move or leave the house for the past 25 years," doctors said.
As a precautionary measure, the flight was furnished with all the equipment required in case of an emergency such as portable ventilator, portable defibrillator, oxygen cylinders, intubating laryngoscopes and other safety drugs.
Ms Ahmed is being transported by a fully equipped truck, which will be followed by an ambulance and a police escort to Saifee Hospital where a special room has been created for her.
