Dear Aman veerji,

I really appreciate ur move towards humanity. But why everyone thinks of donating eyes only. There are other organs too which are needed by patients i.e. kidney, bone marrow. In fact bone marrow can be donated being alive and not after his death.

But in India people are so miser that they don't even donate blood, which is also considered as an organ. People should be made awared about donating organs, but the right step comes forward when person himself makes his own mind first; thinking that might be one day his family need some organ.

And if person thimks it to be a business, then there is no solution to this everlasting problem.

Gr8 Aman veerji...i have already decided  to donate each and every organ of my body when i die..i have even told my mom about it...and i think i should be made compulsory for all of us to donate the parts of our bodies after death coz they become useless and are just burned.. but if we think deeply it can help millions of people out there who are suffering from many diseases...there is one more important aspect in this for example if somebody donates his eyes to someone after his death atleast his eyes will not die with him and it will be alive with that guy to whom the eyes are given...

wjkkwjkfateh

we can ask any hospital where there is eye bank..they will give u card which we can keep in our wallet & that is helpful in case of accidental death...& also the very important thing is that our parents & near ones should be told about or wish & should b convinced about the need & timig of this act...i mean they should be told about this fully bcos say if i die tomorrow its expected of my near ones to dispose off my corpse.....so there sahyog is also required in this generous act

fateh

Here is a research on about the AGE Limit at which we can donate our body organz:: It is just that We should be bold enough to be ready to donate...

Quote:
Organ Donation Criteria:
Acceptable
Brain death only
Effective cardiovascular function
Approximate age range 0 - 85 years
Not Acceptable
Evidence of transmissible disease
Evidence of extra cranial malignancy

Tissue Donation Criteria:
Acceptable
Cardiac or brain death only
Age limits
. Bone/Skin: 12 -85 for female, 12 - no upper age for male
Connective tissue: 12 - 45 for male and female
Heart valve: 37 pounds - 55 years for male and female
Femoral Vein: 15 - 29 for female, 15-49 for male
.Saphenous Vein: 15 - 29 for female, 15-65 for male
Not Acceptable
HIV/AIDS
Hepatitis

Eye Donation Criteria
Acceptable
Cardiac or brain death only
Age limit of 73 years

By donating your organs and tissue you can help 50 people regain life. Your heart and lungs can help one breathe again; your kidneys can free two people from having to undergo dialysis. Donating your liver can save the life of someone who's been on a waiting list, your corneas can allow two people to see again. Your bones and skin can repair damaged joints and heal those who have been burned severely

You are pursuing a very noble cauz... here iz some information that may help in your quest... contact information iz given at the end below.

____________________________________

For Kidney Donorz


Would you like to be a Donor?

You can donate a kidney when you are alive or you can register for organ donation and carry a donor card for the donation of your kidney on your demise. In the latter case, donation depends on the cause of death and on how quickly your kin and treating doctors arrange for the harvest of organs.

Being a Live Donor

Who can donate a kidney?
  • Anyone who is generally healthy and has two fully functioning kidneys can be a live donor.
  • Your tissue type should match that of the patient.

What is the advantage of donating a live Kidney?

To the donor, there is no discomfort. If his other kidney is healthy, it is adequate to perform all kidney functions. To the recipient the benefits are many:

  • The patient does not have to join the long queue for the availability of a kidney.
  • The quality of the organ tends to be superior to that of a kidney removed from a cadaver. The organ spends minimum time in storage.
  • The success rate of live kidney transplant is high.

What is the surgical procedure the donor has to undergo and what are the possible complications?

Surgery

A ten inch long cut is made on the stomach ( or on the side) on the left or right depending on the kidney to be removed. This is done under general anaesthesia. The surgeon cuts through three layers of tissue. The kidney is taken out and the donor is stitched up. The procedure takes about four hours. After the operation, the patient is given painkillers, nourishment is given intravenally and a catheter is used for urine collection. A weeks hospital stay is essential.

Alternatively, laparascopic removal is also possible. Here the cut is smaller, the operation is less invasive and requires shorter hospital stay. However this procedure is not as common as surgery.



Complications

In India racketeering in organs was rampant in the early nineties. Poor people were tempted to sell their kidneys for a few thousand rupees by middlemen who made huge profits. Apart from the moral issues, poor aftercare was reported for donors.

However, if the operation is done in a hospital of good standing, there are no major risks involved, if the donor is generally healthy.

  • The donor has to cope with pain and is usually hospitalised for a week or so. By this time, he or she is able to walk and use the toilet without help.
  • He or she has to guard against infection in the area of incision.
  • As with any surgery under anaesthesia, the possibility of catching pneumonia exists.
  • Collapsed lung. The kidney is close to the lung, and the pleura, the space around the lung, may be accidentally opened during surgery. If so, the lung may collapse. In such a case, a tube is inserted in the chest to expand the lung.


Registering for Organ Donation

There a few organisations in India where you can register for kidney donation. Multi Organ Harvesting Aid Network ( MOHAN) Foundation is one. You can contact the following addresses, fill in a form and get yourself a donor card.

MOHAN Foundation
Post Box No. 7155
Chennai-600 102
email: shroff@giasmd01.vsnl.net.in


MOHAN Foundation,A-81, Anna Nagar, Chennai-600 102
or
MOHAN Foundation,P.O. Box No.16775, Sion (W),
Mumbai - 400 022.

However, remember, whether you have the card or not, your kin must permit the removal of organs at the time of death. If they object, your organs cannot be removed.



Dos and Donts for Kidney patients:


Whatever treatment option you prefer, or whatever stage your kidney disease is in, here are some things you have to watch out for:
  • If you have diabetes, watch your blood sugar closely to keep it under control. Consult your doctor for the latest in treatment.
  • Have your blood pressure checked regularly. You should get your doctors advice on how best this should be kept under control.
  • Avoid pain killers or other drugs that may make your kidney disease worse. Check with your doctor before taking any medicine.
  • Diet restrictions: Some types of foods make things worse for a kidney patient. You may be asked to restrict the salt in your food. Salt contains sodium and this steps up your blood pressure. Potassium is another mineral ( Found in fruits) that you may have to restrict.
    You should keep a check on your cholesterol levels. Cholesterol narrows the arteries and affects proper blood circulation.
    Your protein intake will have to be watched. Healthy kidneys can retain protein when filtering out wastes. However, problem kidneys will not be able to do this efficiently. More proteins in the diet means more work for the kidneys. Yet, protein is essential for the body. Seek your doctors advice.
  • You may need to be treated for anaemia. Healthy kidneys make the hormone EPO, which stimulates the bones to make red blood cells. Diseased kidneys may not make enough EPO. This has to be supplemented.
  • Increase Your Awareness
Prevention

Here are some safeguards against kidney disease:
  • Control your blood pressure.
  • If you are a diabetic, ensure tight control of your blood sugar levels.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly.
  • Drink plenty of fluids (6-8 glasses of water per day).
  • Do not overuse over-the-counter medications.
  • Treat wounds and infections; follow your doctors instructions.
  • Limit exposure to heavy metals and toxic chemicals.

Welcome to the LT family SteveSmall ji...I can understand the pain u r going thru....veer if i m not wrong in India there is a rule that only a family member or blood relations can donat his/her kidney? so I think u should seek someone from ur family or u can also register urself in some big hospital like AIIMS where people can get kidney of some accident victims but that availability is by chance....

Our best wishes are with u and ur family dear...
