Devers set for Brain Surgery today in T&T
Guyanese International Radio cricket broadcaster and cricket writer Sean Devers is set to undergo Brain Surgery today at noon at the St Clair Medical Centre in Trinidad after meeting with his doctor, Robert Ramcharan in Port of Spain yesterday.
Devers is expected to spend two days in the ICU and another five days in the hospital before a recovery period of about three months, one of which will be spent in Trinidad for observations.
The former Guyana youth cricketer thanked all those who contributed to the cost of US$25,000 for the surgery and said that the estimated US$10,000 for post surgery expenses has been almost reached from donations from well wishers including those in Trinidad.
Devers, a father of three is suffering from a brain tumor which will be tested for cancer this week following the four-hour surgery and also thanked his mom, eldest son Ricardo and other family members and friends for their support.
Radio shows and Telethons were done for Devers in Barbados, Guyana and Trinidad. Dr Rambaran said that weakness to his right side and a 10% chance of his speech being affected should be the main side effects of the removal of the level one tumor which is causing seizures and headaches for Devers since last December.
“God is a mighty God and I put my life in his hands as I go into surgery tomorrow (today).
I know I will be a testimony to his power when all of this is over and be a stronger and better person,” Devers said from Trinidad yesterday.
Updates on his condition will be posted on his Facebook page and the Sean Devers Brain Fund Facebook page which was set up from New York. Devers’ son Ricardo is with him in the twin Island Republic.
