Consent *after* the procedure? Definitely a bit dodgy. Had she explained all the stuff before? Even if she had, it's still a bit cheeky.

Also, FAST test. You don't need all the signs. Any of them can be a sign of a stroke. It's important people understand this! Most strokes won't have all three. In your case, it's not relevant - there's another obvious explanation for it. Just like I wouldn't assume someone of having a heart attack if they complained of central crushing chest pain, and had a big metal girder on their chest...

She didn't mention the 80% thing until after the procedure. I'm calling it a consent form, but I can't remember what the actual title was; I just assume that's what it was supposed to be.

Good point about the FAST test, I didn't explain that very well. In my case, if I had coincidentally been having a stroke then the only symptom I could pay attention to was my arms, and they were fine.
