Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz on Thursday tweeted that her mother Begum Kulsoom Nawaz had been discharged from the intensive care unit (ICU).
Begum Kulsoom Nawaz was admitted to a hospital in London on Wednesday evening for a third surgery as part of her throat cancer treatment.
“[My mother] is recovering Alhamdolillah,” Maryam tweeted. “Jazak’Allah for your prayers.”

This is the third time Begum Nawaz has been admitted to the hospital for surgery related to her throat cancer treatment. The second surgery aimed to remove the diseased lymph nodes from her chest. The latest surgery is the most comprehensive operations conducted yet.
It is pertinent to mention here that Maryam ran a successful campaign for the PML-N while her mother received medical treatment in London, resulting in PML-N securing Nawaz’s ‘home seat’ in NA-120.
