My spouse over went a hip replacement operation. The method used for attaching replacement joints was cement. The cement didn’t set properly and the artificial joint began to move. It broke through the skin and is now sticking out of the leg. We are in our late 70’s and my spouse refuses to sue for malpractice or do anything at all about it, just sitting around waiting for a sign from GOD on how to handle the situation. So much time has gone by and I’m afraid the situation will eventually become fatal. I desperately need to know if I have any decision making rights? Can I sue? Can I get forced medical help based on the fact that the decisions are harmful to their health? Please help!
