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.
