You may ask " Why was this book written?". Since I was in medical school and later on continued my training that led me to become a transplant specialist, I found one recurrent problem that impacted medical results : Patient Education. I found over and over patients run into serious medical problems because they did not know enough about their illnesses. In the transplant field this lack of education can even be life threatening. I believe by educating yourself about your disease you will be more successful in coping with the illness. This book's aim is to provide education on the common events seen in the first 100 days after kidney transplant. My goal is to make these 100 days a better experience.This educational material includes three main sections:SECTION I: THE BASICS BEFORE KIDNEY TRANSPLANT: Introduction about how the kidneys work, what their main functions are and the usual labs that doctors use to evaluate kidney problems.SECTION II: FIRST 100 DAYS AFTER KIDNEY TRANSPLANT: Day by day explanation following transplant. We concentrate on important events that impact patient and graft survival. We provide helpful insights on important topics daily ; most often in chronological occurrence.SECTION III: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS AFTER KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION: A list of Q & A that have been carefully selected from staff with several years of experience in the transplant field.I hope you enjoy reading this book and that it helps you understand more about how a kidney transplant impacts your life. My wish is that this book will help the recipient gain the most of this precious gift (transplant).Fidel Barrantes M.D.

Why has Egypt, a pioneer of organ transplantation, been reluctant to pass a national organ transplant law for more than three decades? This book analyzes the national debate over organ transplantation in Egypt as it has unfolded during a time of major social and political transformationincluding mounting dissent against a brutal regime, the privatization of health care, advances in science, the growing gap between rich and poor, and the Islamic revival. Sherine Hamdy recasts bioethics as a necessarily political project as she traces the moral positions of patients in need of new tissues and organs, doctors uncertain about whether transplantation is a good” medical or religious practice, and Islamic scholars. Her richly narrated study delves into topics including current definitions of brain death, the authority of Islamic fatwas, reports about the mismanagement of toxic waste predisposing the poor to organ failure, the Egyptian black market in organs, and more. Incorporating insights from a range of disciplines, Our Bodies Belong to God sheds new light on contemporary Islamic thought, while challenging the presumed divide between religion and science, and between ethics and politics.
