Roma Chowdhury's condition improves
Freedom fighter Roma Chowdhury, who was taken to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH) on August 26, was shifted to a cabin on Wednesday after she showed signs of improvement.
Roma was taken to the ICU after she suffered from mineral imbalance and her condition deteriorated following diarrhoea, Dr Kazi Md Abrar Hasan, associate professor of Medicine Department at CMCH said.
The freedom fighter had been admitted to the hospital in January following a fractured waist and other old age complications, he added.
Although her condition is better than before and she recovered from diarrhoea , Roma is showing some sudden health issues, Alauddin Khokon, who is caring for her, said quoting doctors.
She will be kept under watch by a team of expert physicians, he added.
Alauddin Khokon, also the publisher of her autobiography, said Roma's diabetes went out of control making it difficult for doctors to treat other existing complications.
Roma Chowdhury was brutally tortured and violated by Pakistani occupational army in Boalkhali upazila of Chittagong during the Liberation War of 1971.
She has written 18 books including a chronicle of her days in 1971 named "Ekattorer Janani".
