Has anyone else ever signed a surgical consent from prior to elective surgery to wakeup from the surgery to discover that the surgeon has "done something completly different". Not to save a life, stop excessive bleeding etc just because he "felt it was it was in best interest". No next of kin were consulted, in fact I was miles away from home at a specialist hospital on my own.
Longer hospital stay, longer recovery, bigger scar the list could go on.
If so, what actions did you take and what was the outcome?
