UK Mom Has Legs Amputated During C-Section

In what appears to be a case of gross medical negligence, Ella Clarke of Torquay (Devon) England was put under for what was expected to be a relatively routine C-section for her eighth child, but when she woke up, she found both of her legs had been amputated just below the knee.

It turned out that Clarke had suffered complications from the C-section required for placenta previa (low-lying placenta), and the doctors had to put her in a medically induced coma due to blood loss. Unfortunately, a circulation-related infection developed while she was in the coma, and the doctors had to amputate both her legs to prevent the infection from spreading and threatening her life.

Medical records show that Ella required five blood transfusions, 6 liters of blood in all, during the scary C-section (baby is fine).

According to the Daily Mail, Ella and her family are considering legal action as she says that there was a 6-hour time span that no one checked on her during the coma, with the result of her legs being deprived of oxygen and dangerous blood clots forming.

The doctors had to amputate her legs below the knee to save her life. When Ella woke up from the coma five days later, she was horrified to discover she would never stand on her own two feet again.
