Ballesteros stable after brain surgery

*dunno if it's been posted already*

From BBC.co.uk

Golf legend Seve Ballesteros is in a stable condition after undergoing an operation on a brain tumour.

The Madrid hospital where he underwent the procedure said he was conscious and stable and recovering in intensive care, and there were no complications.

A biopsy on the tumour was scheduled for Tuesday but doctors decided to operate to remove as much of the tumour as possible before treatment.

It was first said the op took 12 hours, but a later one said it was seven.

The 51-year-old five-time major winner collapsed at Madrid Airport last week.

He underwent a number of tests over the weekend which uncovered the tumour and after informing his family, Ballesteros confirmed the news in a statement on Sunday.

A statement from La Paz Hospital on Wednesday said: "The patient will spend a post-operative period in the intensive care unit.

"He is currently conscious and in a stable condition, although he cannot receive visits in the coming days until he recovers from the surgery."

The removed tumour will be analyzed and it will take several days before the results are known, and what course of treatment Ballesteros may need.

Ballesteros won 87 titles during his career, including the Open in 1979, 1984 and 1988 and the Masters in 1980 and 1983 and captained Europe to Ryder Cup victory at Valderrama in 1997.

He retired last year following arthritic back and knee problems late in his career and doctors discovered an irregular heartbeat when he was admitted to hospital in 2007.

I heard this morning that he had a slight complication after surgery but is stable. I always enjoyed watching him play.

Best wishes.

I was reading about him, and he was once described as a cross between a ballerina and a bastard. Cool Grin Grin Grin

I would think that's a pretty fair statement, poetry in motion (with a club), but just an asshat on the course. It may just be the byproduct of being a world class athlete who can talk the talk and walk the walk.

MADRID, Spain - Seve Ballesteros developed a complication following brain tumor surgery, requiring doctors to remove a piece of the golf star's skull to relieve pressure. The 51-year-old Spaniard was stable but still in intensive care, La Paz Hospital said Thursday.

He was always one of a handful of golfers I used to love to hate (much like TW is to certain esteemed members of this board), but I still wouldn't wish this on him.

Wonder if 'Zinger sent a card?

Ps. If I'm in trouble on the course (behind trees especially) to this day I still chant Seve, Seve, Seve, works every time.
