Doctor fulfilling the permissible instruction of the patient

Q: I'm having major surgery in a few weeks and wanted to find out if I can tell the doctors not to let me suffer or become a burden to them if things are not going well. Can I tell them not to resuscitate me more than thrice?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
