Diti’s condition has since remained unchanged, confirms Dr Shagufa Anwar, Public Relations and Business Development Officer at United Hospital, today.
“Her health condition is unchanged. There has not been further deterioration of her health since she began having treatment here. We are giving her the best medical care and attention,” she told the Bangla daily Prothom Alo.
She has been speaking to everyone and is able to recognise them, but after extended periods of conversation she seems to start speaking incoherently, Shagufa added.
She was being treated at the Madras Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology. But she came back home as her condition showed no improvement, and since has been under the supervision of Syed Sharif Ahmed, director of Neuro Science department at United Hospital Dhaka.
After she was diagnosed with brain cancer on July 25, 2015, Diti was taken to Madras Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, India. When her health condition improved slightly, she was brought back to Bangladesh. But her condition worsened by the end of the year and she was taken back to India in November.
As her health did not seem to improve, she was brought back to Bangladesh in January and was immediately admitted to United Hospital.
