'World's heaviest woman' Eman Ahmed discharged from Mumbai hospital, sister thanks doctors

Arguments over the final arrangements threatened to mar the proceedings, and needed intervention by State Health Minister Dr. Deepak Sawant.First up was the standoff between Saifee Hospital and VPS Healthcare, which runs Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi.

Her sister Shaimaa Salim who had earlier alleged that her sister had not recovered at all has come out to thank all the doctors who treated Eman.

A green corridor was created for Eman's transport from the hospital to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International airport, from where she will catching her flight today at 6 pm. Lakdawala, too, had denied the charge. "She would be discharged from Saifee tomorrow at 10.30 AM", said Lakdawala. Eman, a resident of Alexandria in Egypt, had not stepped out of her house for more than two decades due to her obese condition followed by a stroke that left her paralysed on one side a year ago.

Nurses who took care of Eman for months said in a tweet, although she has left the hospital her memories will always remain with them.

"We are very thankful to the people of India to the doctors who treated Eman". Her genetic tests had showed that she has a rare gene mutation that can not be cured through surgery.
