Almost three years after they first came into limelight, two sisters from Una may have hopefully found a solution to their morbid obesity, a result of a genetic condition. The sisters Yogita and Amisha Nandwana both aged 8.5 years and 6 years respectively lost close to 10 kgs each following a sleeve gastrectomy bariatric surgery. The surgery involves reducing the size of the stomach pouch as a result of which the ability to consume food goes down. It should be noted that the sisters were first brought to Civil Hospital in 2015 and government had also promised to extend help to them but things didn't work out.
