From what?: I think a more detailed description here will allow us to help you. Trauma to the spleen (laceration) is a surgical emergency that usually requires splenectomy; patients usually can then lead normal lives, with few restrictions. Liver is another matter; more details will help us determine whether a gastroenterologist or a hematologist would be better suited to answer your question.

How long does it take to cleanse the liver ?

No clear answer: It is unclear what you mean by "cleansing the liver" - the liver receives blood from the intestines and from the heart and is responsible for many functions, including excreting toxins. In some cases, the liver may be affected by long-term exposure to excess calories or toxins. If the damage is minimal, it can be reversed within a few weeks, in severe cases damage may not be reversible.
