Islamabad: Ousted Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's wife Kulsoom Nawaz, who is undergoing cancer treatment in London, has been discharged from a hospital here and her further treatment, including chemotherapy, would start next week.
Nawaz underwent a third operation for lymphoma, for which she was diagnosed last month, on September 21.
"Shukar Alhamdulillah, Ammi (Kulsoom Nawaz) is better, discharged from the hospital and back home. Her further treatment including chemotherapy starts next week." her daughter Maryam said in a tweet on Friday night.
Speaking to Geo News, her son Hussain Nawaz said his mother's condition was better now. "There do come ups and downs during ailment and it took a couple of days for my mother's condition to improve."
The wife of the former premier won the Lahore NA-120 by-poll last week. The seat had fallen vacant after Sharif's disqualification by the top court in the Panama Papers case on July 28.
