Consent can be made easier

J Taylor

During a surgical consultation, potential complications are discussed. But, how much we should mention?
We discuss complications so the patient can say no to surgery if they decide not to take the risk. Complications can be presented as a list, sometimes long, and academic. Sometimes patients decide the surgeon lacks positivity because complications are discussed. A patient can easily conclude "if something untoward happens, I have nobody to blame but myself."
