Noorul Hassan, a Sadiqabad-based 330kg man, suffering from extreme obesity, underwent on Friday a successful weight loss surgery in Lahore.
On June 17 he was shifted to Punjab’s capital to be examined by doctors on directions of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa had taken notice of a social media appeal made by Hassan, directing special medical treatment for him.
He was airlifted in a military helicopter to Lahore as he was unable to travel in ambulance by road due to his weight. Hassan is unable to move freely due to excessive weight.
As per doctors, 100 kg of Noor will be gradually brought down in the first six months. Then, it will take two more years to bring him to a weight which won’t imperil his health, they added.
The ecstatic local and family of Noor Hassan had thanked General Bajwa and prayed for him and country’s safety.
In 2017, 42-year-old Muhammad Naveed also underwent laparoscopic surgery in the Punjab capital.
Naveed weighed 360kg owing to family tendency and overeating. He is said to have lost 150kg in six months after the surgery.
