To go ahead with any surgery or treatment, by law we must ask for your permission and will ask you to sign a consent form. Your doctors will explain what will happen during any treatment. He or she will tell you what the risks, benefits and alternatives may be, and how you can expect to feel afterwards. It is important that you understand everything that will happen and you should sign the form only when all your questions have been answered to your satisfaction. You have a right to refuse any treatment or tests.
