Au coeur de la greffe : la socialisation secondaire des transplantés cardiaques

Abstract : "Last chance" solution for patients with severe heart disease, transplantation is not only a body modification: it also appears as an emotional, representational, social shock. Including part of an Other into oneself, imagining one's body open, fragmented and partially replaced, and being potentially disturbed in all social spheres (such as family and work) make of transplantation a major event in the biography of the individual. However, the reading of this event by transplant recipients appears framed by norms and discourses that draw the lines bewteen the "right" and "wrong" ways of thinking and behaving. Thus, the mechanistic representation of the body and the respect for the donor are rules that patients must learn and manage. Considering that the experience of transplantation is consequently highly social and constitutes a secondary socialization process, we analyze the the individual's agreeing with or resisting to these norms and representations. Mobilizing data from qualitative research (interviews, observations ) and quantitative ones (surveys), we demonstrate that the definition of transplantation is variable, ranging from "illness" to positive support for meaning that can lead to the figure of the "professional transplant recipient".
