My mother had hip replacement surgery. The day after surgery she was complaining about not being able to feel anything under her knee and her leg was cold and a different color. We asked the Dr. and Nurse about it. They said it was due to anesthesia she had received for her surgery. On the Third day they found she had a blood clot. She was schedule for emergency surgery to remove blood clot. A week after removing her blood clot the Dr. decided for Amputation above of knee. She was unable to feel her leg even though the blood was circulating. Does she have a Malpractice because they found the blood clot too late and her leg had gone over 2 days with no blood circulation?
