Ahmed was transferred to the Abu Dhabi hospital after an ugly spat broke out between her sister, Shaimaa Selim - who wanted her recovery to be speedy, and the Saifee doctors.

Burjeel Hospital management confirmed to Al Arabiya English that they are going to arrange the return of Eman's body to her home country in Egypt in the coming days. But after the disputes, her sister had taken her back to Abu Dhabi. However, she said Eman's health condition had improved after shifting to Abu Dhabi hospital. Doctors had planned to treat Eman's acute issues - including her urinary tract infection, bedsores, rehabilitation, speech therapy - and provide her with psychological support within three months, as part of the first phase.

In Feb 2017, Eman Ahmed travelled to Mumbai where a group of doctors treated her successfully using bariatric surgery. When she landed in India, her initial weight was more than 500 kgs. "We would have definitely lost her without operating as she was very sick".

Following a meeting with doctors, it was decided Eman would be flown to the United Arab Emirates to continue her treatment. The hospital further said, "Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to her family".
