The sister of the world's heaviest woman is disputing a surgeon's claim to have helped her lose half her weight through gastric band surgery.


Shaimaa Selim says her sister Iman Ahmed Abdulati, 36, who weighed half a tonne (79 stone) has deteriorated since the operation at the Saifee Hospital in the city of Mumbai in western India's Maharashtra state.


The sisters flew from their home in the Egyptian city of Alexandria to India after surgeon Dr Muffazal Lakdawala offered to help Ms Abdulati lose weight.


He performed bariatric surgery, which involves fitting a gastric band to reduce the size of the stomach, and claimed the operation had helped her lose about 250 kilogrammes (39 stone 7 pounds).


But Ms Selim says the hospital does not even have equipment capable of weighing her and she estimates that her sister has lost no more than 60 kilogrammes (9 stone 6 pounds).


She also says that Ms Abdulati is suffering frequent seizures and that the hospital has done little to help her. She says it does not even have a CAT scan machine big enough to examine her.


In a video shot inside the hospital, Ms Selim accused Dr Lakdawala of lying.


She says: "In Egypt, Iman used to talk a lot and smiled often. She was so lively.


"But now, she has become so tired. She doesn't talk or move at all and she looks bluish. No improvement."


However, Dr Lakdawala insists that Ms Abdulati had made substantial progress and said that she would be discharged within the next few days.


When asked about Ms Selim's comments, he said: "It's disappointing to say the least after all that we have done for Iman.


"Iman has been cured of all obesity-related problems, as I promised. But now, she is suffering from seizures. We are trying to make her lose 50 kilograms more so we can perform a CT scan.


"Only Shaimaa Selim can best explain her reasons of such a dramatic turnaround and views contrary to all the best medical opinions available."


Ms Abdulati's weight is said to be down to a genetic condition so rare that she is the only known sufferer in the world.

    I'm really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly
    in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any suggestions
    to help fix this problem?
