Over the years, there have been remarkable stories of some organ transplant recipients encountering “unimaginable” phenomena. Even though the recipient doesn’t know what happened to the donor due to medical laws, it seems they have received some messages from the donors that have provided clues.
Dreams of a car accident
A netizen shared his father’s strange experience after receiving an organ transplant on Taiwan’s Dcard website. His father suffered from kidney failure and had been waiting for a transplant for eight years, but after receiving the transplant, he experienced ongoing dreams about car accidents.
The netizen said that his family is devoutly Christian and does not believe in ghosts or other so-called “superstitions.” He shared that his father was diagnosed with kidney failure when he was in the fourth grade and embarked on the long road of dialysis treatment. After eight years of dialysis, his health was deteriorating. In the middle of the year, when his father’s health was at its worst, they received news in the middle of the night that the years of waiting for an organ transplant were over.
Faced with this sudden opportunity, he had only 20 minutes to decide. After a brief discussion, his family promptly accepted the organ donation. But things did not go as smoothly as expected. After the transplant, his father’s body rejected the new kidney, requiring him to stay in the intensive care unit for two months. Gradually, his father’s condition stabilized, and he was transferred to an ordinary ward.
One night, the netizen’s father told his mother that while he was in the ICU, he kept dreaming of being hit on the highway, falling out of his car, and flying onto the grass. The dreams were so vivid that it felt as if he was there.
The recipient did not know who the donor was or what had happened. Puzzled by the dream, the family asked the transplant team about it. The staff was so shocked that they couldn’t speak and only nodded silently. It turned out that the father’s dream revealed the last episode of the donor’s life.
Recipient of an organ transplant reveals donor’s name
Another strange organ transplant case was reported by the media in Taiwan. While hospitalized following a cadaveric kidney transplant in Kaohsiung, Ms. Chen said she often sensed the spirit of the suspected kidney donor next to her bedside. She saw vague dark shadows, smelled a putrid scent, and even told the name of the kidney donor.
Ms. Chen, who is a psychic, had relied on dialysis to maintain her life after her kidneys were damaged in a car accident many years ago. When she was suddenly offered an organ transplant opportunity, she immediately agreed without thinking.
After undergoing the transplant surgery, Ms. Chen was admitted to the intensive care unit. While there, she had a vague feeling that someone was watching her from the side of the bed and intuitively believed it to be the donor’s spirit.
According to the Taiwan Organ Transplant Act, medical personnel must keep the donor’s information confidential. Ms. Chen mentioned these strange events to her attending physician and told him the donor was Mr. Chen. But her physician thought it was just a hallucination and believed that the kidney donor was not a Mr. Chen but a Mr. Pan, so the matter was left unsettled.
One day, when checking the patient’s information, the doctor found that Mr. Chen was a kidney donor. He realized that Mr. Chen’s soul was still in the ward after the organ donation. This made the doctor, who emphasized scientific evidence and did not usually believe in such things, feel unimaginable and develop goosebumps over his entire body.
These compelling stories, involving vivid dreams and eerie sensations, suggest a mysterious connection between organ recipients and donors. Despite stringent medical laws that keep donor information confidential, such instances challenge our understanding of life beyond the physical realm.
These accounts not only raise thought-provoking questions about the potential interconnectedness of life forces, but also highlight the complex nature of the human experience, something that extends beyond our current medical scientific knowledge.
