  • My fil had his taken out years ago, like 30 or so years ago. He was in an accident and had to have it taken out because of heavy bleeding. He's basically healthy, no issues that go back to having no spleen. I mean he's 65 and he's lived a hard life, recovering alcoholic, lived way up north on construction sites, did heavy construction, etc, so he's had some issues, but nothing that is because of his spleen. Good luck!

  • I have 2 friends that have had tehm removed. The first was because he feel on a stick and basically if they didn't take it out he would die, his spleen was cut in half. He has not had any problems that I am aware of and he had it taken out like 8 years ago. Another friend had hers removed, although I cannot remember why. I don't believe she has had any problems with her either.

    Good Luck!
