JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If you are seriously hurt during surgery, who is responsible?
One First Coast woman says she's been fighting for three years for someone to take responsibility.
"The last thing I heard was 'do you know how to work this?' and then I was out," said Patricia Lancaster.
Lancaster says she barely made it home from the hospital before she called 911.
"The pain was just terrible, and I come to find out, he had ruptured my colon," she said.
Before the operation, Lancaster's intestines were almost completely blocked with scar tissue, unable to use the bathroom. It was a life threatening condition.
Doctors at Orange Park Medical Center flushed out her blocked colon three times, but they recommended a more permanent procedure.
