MUMBAI: She stands in front of a bedroom mirror, colour-coordinates her dress and makeup, and steps out into the living room of her Vasai bungalow. After eight long years.
Amita Rajani (42) recently got back to her feet after being confined to bed since 2007 with a genetic condition that caused her weight to touch 300kg.
Once a businesswoman, Rajani underwent bariatric surgery, more specifically laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, this April. It brought down her weight to 183kg. She is still losing it.
"Amita's is a classic case of 'super super morbid obesity'. She had the highest circumference at 100 inches among any Indian and her body mass index was over 100," said bariatric surgeon Dr Shashank Shah who operated on her in Pune. The BMI of an average person should be 18-23. The circumference should be less than 80cm.
“拉佳尼是超胖的典型案例。她100英尺的胸围是印度人中最大的，而她的体质指数超过100。”减肥手术医生 Shashank Shah在普纳给她进行了手术。普通人的体质指数应该是介于18到23之间，胸围应该少于80厘米。
