MUMBAI -- Once known as the world's heaviest woman, Eman Ahmed is set to be discharged from the Saifee hospital here on Thursday and will be shifted to Burjeel Hospital in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Eman is "stable, in good health and fit to fly", said the e-mail issued by the VPS Burjeel Hospital to Saifee Hospital COO Huzefa Shehabi.

Earlier, Eman Ahmed's sister Saimma Selim had alleged that Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, who has been treating the former, is not correct about his updates about Eman's health and recovery, adding that her sister has not recovered at all.

"Dr Muffazal Lakdawala is a liar and is not giving right/factual updates about Eman's recovery. Eman has not recovered a bit," Saimma said.

However, when approached Dr Lakdawala to know the other side of the story, he denied all the allegations levelled against him by Saimma.

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

The doctor also said that Saimma is creating a scene because she does not want to take her sister back to Egypt due to financial reasons.

"Eman is fine and is doing good. She has recovered well and only a CT scan is to be done to ascertain her neurological condition."

"Actually, Everything was right with Saimma for initial 15 days after Eman's treatment started but when she recovered and we suggested that she can be taken back to Egypt, Saimma started to create all this drama as she doesn't want to take her sister back to Egypt due to financial reasons," he told ANI.

On April 21, 36-year-old Egyptian Eman Ahmed, who was the heaviest woman in the world at 500-plus kg, had lost 250kg in two months after undergoing surgery here at Saifee Hospital.
