John A Douglas MAP Incursion 004

About

The reality of living with a hybrid body and the resulting disrupted sense of identity presents a challenging and complex set of circumstances for Douglas and many other transplant patients. Lifelong compliance to a rigorous program of medications, diet and fitness is essential for maintaining the health of the transplanted organ.

Paradoxically, the immuno-suppressant medications needed for the patient to live and for the transplant to succeed are fraught with potentially serious side effects that can prove fatal. Moreover, the transplant recipient has been surgically altered with the DNA and living tissue of an unknown person, fracturing and altering sense of self. The body, as a product of 21st century bio-medical technology, no longer wholly belongs to the self; it has become a post- human body that lives in a state of deferred death.
