See what questions
a doctor would ask.
A woman had a hysterectomy following a cancer diagnosis. Severe stomach cramping led to a diagnosis of ovarian cysts and she was operated on to have her ovaries removed. Doctors told her husband the operation was successful but she had lost a lot of blood. When her husband saw her she was in considerable pain and her condition had deteriorated. She was discharged even though still suffering immensely from pain. The hospital refused to give her a bed after the discharge. Apparently the doctor also removed other organs without authorization. She was taken to another hospital where she was told that her wound was septic from a punctured bowel. She died before she could receive further treatment. Her husband is considering suing.
