Frequently Asked Questions

A splenectomy is a surgery for the removal of the spleen.
Splenectomy may be performed to treat various conditions, including spleen rupture, certain blood disorders (such as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura or hereditary spherocytosis), certain cancers, and non-functioning or enlarged spleen.
A splenectomy can be performed through open surgery or using minimally invasive techniques like laparoscopy.
Potential risks include bleeding, infection, injury to nearby organs, blood clot formation, pneumonia, and a slightly increased risk of certain bacterial infections.
Yes, after splenectomy, you'll need vaccinations to help prevent certain bacterial infections, such as pneumococcal, meningococcal, and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). Your doctor will provide specific recommendations.
Recovery time varies depending on the surgical approach and the reason for the splenectomy; it may take weeks to a few months to recover.
Yes, without a spleen, your body's ability to fight certain infections, particularly those caused by encapsulated bacteria, may be reduced. Vaccinations and preventive measures become crucial.
Splenectomy can increase the risk of certain infections and, rarely, lead to a condition called overwhelming post-splenectomy infection (OPSI). However, with proper medical care and precautions, these risks can be minimized.
Yes, most people can lead a normal life after splenectomy. However, it is essential to take vaccinations and prompt medical attention.
While a splenectomy itself does not cause anaemia, it may be performed to treat certain types of anaemia, such as hereditary spherocytosis.
The spleen plays a role in filtering blood and helping fight certain infections. Its removal can affect specific aspects of immune function, but other parts of the immune system can compensate.
Yes, a splenectomy can be performed laparoscopically in many cases. This approach offers potential benefits such as smaller incisions, reduced post-operative pain, and shorter hospital stays.
No, the spleen does not have the ability to regenerate or regrow. Therefore, if a partial splenectomy is performed, the remaining spleen tissue will not regenerate but can still function adequately.
Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics or prophylactic medications to help prevent infections or manage specific conditions.
If you've had a splenectomy, you are generally not eligible to donate whole blood, but you may still be eligible to donate other blood components, such as plasma or platelets. It's best to consult with your local blood donation centre for specific guidelines.
In most cases, splenectomy is permanent and cannot be reversed. However, there are rare instances where a second operation can be performed to transplant a spleen or part of a spleen.
In general, after full recovery, most individuals can participate in sports and physical activities. However, certain contact sports or activities with a high risk of injury may require additional precautions or modifications.
The frequency of follow-up appointments depends on the reason for the splenectomy and your overall health. Your doctor will provide specific guidance on when to schedule follow-up visits.
In most cases, no specific dietary restrictions are necessary after splenectomy. However, it is important to maintain a healthy and balanced diet to support overall well-being.
In general, a splenectomy does not significantly affect overall lifespan. However, it is crucial to manage potential risks such as infections and seek prompt medical attention for any symptoms of concern.
