Doctors remove blood clot from Hubert Ingraham’s brain

Former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham underwent a two-hour surgical procedure to remove a blood clot from his brain, according to neurosurgeon Dr. Magnus Ekedede.

Ingraham reached out to Ekedede and cardiologist Dr. Duane Sands after he experienced a worrisome headache and tingling in his left fingers.

He was asked to visit Doctors Hospital for examination where he was admitted and underwent surgery to remove the blood clot, which doctors believe had been present for a while.

Dr. Magnus said Ingraham was coherent, laughing and in good spirits following the surgery and is expected to be discharged from hospital on Wednesday.

He said Ingraham had First raised concerns about his health ahead of the Free National Movement convention on June 1 and was told to keep an eye on it.

As the symptoms progressed he contacted him once again requesting a scan of his brain.

Dr. Ekedede said Ingraham should be able to drive and resume other normal activities in two weeks
