31-year old, Shacare Terry, from Indianapolis, IN reportedly traveled to the Dominican Republic to have a cosmetic procedure done in April. Shacare’s twin sister Sharae, reportedly told WRTV-INDIANAPOLIS that Shacare took the trip with a childhood friend of theirs, Carlesha Williams. Sharae said she Facetimed with her sister a few days after she had her surgery.
“I knew something wasn’t right. I knew it in my heart.” Sharae said, after speaking with her sister.”
Shacare’s Facebook page said she’d taken a trip abroad for cosmetic surgery, prior to this trip. Back in February, she posted to her Facebook page that she was going to Mexico. Shacare’s family reportedly said she underwent gastric sleeve surgery during her Mexico trip.
3 months later, on April 11th, Shacare and Williams left for the Dominican Republic trip. Both ladies underwent surgeries for a Brazilian Butt Lift & a Tummy Tuck. Williams told the station that both procedures were done at the Instiituto Medico San Lucas and performed by Dr. Jose Desena.
Williams said that she was still having lots of pain by her second day after surgery. She said Shacare was feeling even worse than she did.
“I was moving around a lot more and Shacare wasn’t really moving around, she wasn’t doing anything. She would lay in bed. I would try to get her to go downstairs and eat with me and she just wasn’t responding well.” Williams said.
Shacare was reportedly admitted into the Centro Medico Escanno SRL Clinic, in Santo Domingo.
“When we go in there and I see her, I almost fell out. She was on all these machines. She was unresponsive, she wasn’t talking, eyes closed.” Williams said.
Williams said she was told by the doctor that Shacare was fine, and just needed some rest. Williams said he assured her that Shacare’s kidneys were “doing well”
Dr. Desana, who performed the procedures on the women, told Williams Shacare wasn’t responsive because she was sedated.
“So, he said, ‘if you unhook that she is going to be perfectly fine’ and he said ‘yeah, the body just needs rest.” Williams said she was told by Desena.
Williams said that when she came back the next day a different doctor was there. This doctor reportedly told her that Shacare was having a hard time breathing on her own. Desena showed up minutes later. He said Shacare was getting better. She just needed to be put on Dialysis.
**Dialysis is a treatment for people whose kidneys are failing. When you have kidney failure, your kidneys don’t filter blood the way they should. As a result, wastes and toxins build up in your bloodstream. Dialysis does the work of your kidneys, removing waste products and excess fluid from the blood.**
“I’m reaching out to the mother to get down here, I’m telling them what’s going on, but I’m trying not to scare them, but I want to scream ‘Get Down Here!’ Williams said.
Shacare’s mother reportedly arrived in the Dominican Republic a week after Shacare’s surgery. Williams said Desena continued telling them the same thing about Shacare. “She would be alright, and just needed some rest.”
“Her mother basically tells me that ‘I don’t believe my daughter is alive, I know my daughter isn’t alive, why won’t they tell me?” Williams said.
Williams said she visited the clinic once again the day she had to travel back to Indiana. She was told they were planning to wake Shacare up the next day. Williams arrived back in the United States on April 21st. That was the day she learned that Shacare had passed away.
“Shacare’s mom said ‘Carlesha, I went back to my room for an hour, and they called me and told me that her heart stopped that quick.’ She hurries up and rushes down to the clinic and they said her daughter was already in a body bag” Williams said.
The United States Department Of State sent a letter to the news station stating that they were aware of the situation and were “providing all appropriate assistance” to the family.
