"She is now on oral fluids and accepting them well", says the hospital, where doctors also removed some of Abd El Aty's stomach fat.
Ahmed, who is from Alexandria, weighed 11 pounds at birth and was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition which causes body parts to swell due to parasitic infection.

Doctors suspect that her obesity is linked to one or multiple genes of the 91 which are known to be connected to obesity.
