Parting shot: Eman Ahmed's sister discloses chats with doctor

On our show Left, Right and Centre, author Shobha De who has raised similar questions on Eman's treatment in one of her columns hit out at the hospital accusing it of a cover and concealing facts on her treatment.

Eman Ahmed, 36, who was formerly known as world's heaviest woman, weighing more than 500 kg, has finally been discharged from Mumbai's Saifee hospital on Thursday post her treatment for weight loss.

She will begin a year-long course of physiotherapy at VPS Burjeel hospital in Abu Dhabi, her doctors in Mumbai said.

She has left for Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, to receive further treatment. She had a stroke when she was 11, after which her weight gradually increased.

Refuting the allegations, Dr Aparna Bhaskar, section chief of bariatric surgery at Saifee Hospital, had said that Shaimaa may be criticising the doctors to extend her sister's stay at the hospital.

"We - Indians?- are upset that an Egyptian woman makes these accusations about India", said Ezzi, who belongs to the Bohra community in Egypt.

Mumbai Police created a special 12-km corridor - normally done to facilities the movement of live organs for transplant - from Saifee Hospital on Charni Road to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in the afternoon.

Her sister, who had recently locked horns with Ahmed's doctor, expressed gratitude to the hospital staff and doctors by saying "Thank You". Lakdawala, too, had denied the charge.

Her bariatric surgeon had said it was a "mistake" to move her. "She would be discharged from Saifee tomorrow at 10.30 AM", said Lakdawala. "So many years of disuse have compounded the problem".

In fact, the doctor said that Eman was doing well.

A team of doctors from VPS Burjeel, (a hospital initially introduced to Eman's family by Dr Lakdawala), had visited the patient here on April 26.

"It took nearly a month for me to form a team of doctors, chalk out a detailed plan for her treatment and then we made a decision to get her here". Her genetic tests had showed that she has a rare gene mutation that can not be cured through surgery.
