They can have mine as long as they check that I am gone. I thought there was a simple donor card method. If there isn't there should be. Isn't it possible to just put your name on a register, because I am sure I did so a good few years ago now. I also informed my family of my wishes.
If cutting me in to little bits and pieces helps a young medical student in his/her studies, the why not? If they want to discover why I am a genius then that's o.k by me too, they can fiddle around with my brain to their heart's content as well. I wonder why the brain seems to be a separate item for donating?
Quickbeam. Thanks for the link, I shall now have a go at making sure I am perhaps more useful to somebody, after I am dead and gone, than I have been previously.
Think they are practising on my body already - went to And E with a simple problem of something stuck in my throat and this morning got a letter from a surgeon saying they want to open me up next month :0(
Much rather wait until I'm gone then they can do what they like.
My father always made his wishes pretty clear that he wanted his body to go to science.
When he went not only did they not want it, which would have grieved him greatly, but they were pretty offhand about the whole matter and gave me twenty four hours to remove his body from the hospital mortuary.
