What would you do?

This was part of an Emergency Room discharge summary note:

"I discussed with him the risks of surgery that includes but are not limited to anesthesia complications that may lead to death, cardiopulmonary arrest that again may lead to death, sepsis, loss of domain, etc.. He obviously does not want to take that risk. The patient needs surgery at this point but has decided to go home against medical advice. "

Gee, what a surprise!
