In a further development, an operation was performed on May 9, which lasted for long hours.

It was reported that Neha’s parents visited many hospitals to get her treated, but all the effects went in vain as doctors refused to operate the girl who weighs just 19.5 kg.

Neha who is just 8-year-old hails from a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Mau district.

Dr. Hasmukh Vora said in a statement, “We took a section of her small intestine and replaced the oesophagus, thereby creating a new link between her mouth and stomach”.

After the operation took place, now Neha was allowed by the doctors to eat solid food from May 15 and will get discharged from the hospital on Thursday.
