A Texas man intending to undergo a weight-loss operation is seeking $10 million in damages for what he says were a series of medical blunders that led to the amputation of both his legs at the knee. Carlos Saucedo has filed a lawsuit in Tarrant County claiming negligence by doctors involved in his 2013 gastric sleeve procedure. The operation induces weight loss by restricting food intake. Saucedo alleges that doctors mistakenly cut his aorta, leading to extensive blood loss.
