A Swedish man who was paralysed by a stroke is filing an official complaint against a Gothenburg hospital after he listened in horror to his doctors telling his girlfriend and relatives he was going to die and discussing transplanting his liver and kidney.
“I heard them tell my girlfriend and my relatives that there was no hope,” Jimi Fritze, 43, told The Telegraph.
“I couldn’t do anything. I could only see and hear. I couldn’t move my body.”
This sounds like a plot from a horror movie but it happens more than you think. It doesn’t usually get carried all the way through all that often, especially in countries with modernized medicine, but it’s not unheard of for doctor’s to think someone is beyond saving and they turn it around. I have to say, it would be hard for me to ever go back to a doctor if I was this guy.
