My husband had a heart attack, did not want angioplasty and wanted thrombolytics used. The transferring hospital said the hospital he was being transferred to would discuss with him and me in full, all his treatment options so he could decide. He was drugged, stripped, drugged again, the procedure started and they then did the consent. He never consented. He was medically assaulted.

I was in hospital with sepsis, when my heart attack occurred. There was no other doctor, I was sent to. I often feel pain and pressure. I am not sure what to do now.
