She has now regained her full senses although the right side of her body is still paralysed, said physicians.
Meanwhile, Health Minister Zahid Maleque who visited the UNO at the hosptial on Sunday said she will recover fully through therapy.
While talking to reporters, he said the UNO is now in a better condition. "Her right side remains paralysed. However, it will recover through therapy with the course of time."
Physicians said Wahida is now in full senses.
She is talking to others and can recollect the pre-attack memories.

They were first taken to Sadar Hospital from where Wahida, 35, was shifted to a Rangpur hospital where she was given treatment at its intensive care unit.
The UNO was airlifted to Dhaka and admitted to the National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital on Thursday.
Wahida underwent brain surgery at the National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital in the capital on Thursday night.
