Woman blames surgeon after losing arms, legs

- Back in November of 2010, Lisa Maria Carter was having a routine procedure but something went terribly wrong. She blames her surgeon, Dr. Larry Glazerman with USF, for accidentally cutting her small bowel and failing to catch it.

When she woke up from a coma, she thought she was wearing black gloves.  But it wasn't a pair of gloves, it was gangrene from a massive infection that eventually led to her arms and legs being amputated.

Lisa Maria says Dr. Glazerman never warned her she could lose all four limbs from this surgery. "No he did not," she insisted.

Lisa Maria's life as an intelligence analyst for the Department of Defense was over, and so was the life that she knew.

Now she is now suing USF for millions for her lifetime of pain and suffering.

“I don't think there is enough pain medication to be given to not feel the pain,” she told a jury.

Dr. Glazerman says he did nothing wrong and was following the acceptable standard of care. He is expected to testify tomorrow.
