Medical Ethics question
Friend of mine went in for Prostrate cancer surgery a while back. Going in he made it clear to the doctors and his wife and kids that he wanted to know exactly how bad it was and the details. He came through fine and is doing well now. He found out much later, after it was all over, that he only had a 20% chance of survival going in. He was pissed to say the least. Can they leagaly and moraly do this? I would sure want to know going in what the odds were.
