Have you suffered from a lost organ?
Sometimes, when someone suffers very serious injuries, surgeons are forced to remove an organ or perhaps even amputate part of their limb. Although these decisions aren’t taken lightly, sometimes this type of medical intervention is required in order to save a life or protect the person from suffering from pain.
If you’re involved in a collision, for example, you could suffer very serious internal injuries. When this occurs, doctors will often need to perform surgery in order to assess the true extent of the damage and repair it where possible. However, if the impact has been so bad that it is not repairable, doctors may be forced to remove an organ.
Whilst this is not ideal, many people can live full and healthy lives following this type of procedure. For example, if you lose your spleen, you can survive by taking a mixture of antibiotics to help perform the functions that your body is no longer able to do.
Similarly, if doctors were forced to remove a kidney, you could survive with just your remaining kidney or you could receive treatment to improve the function of your remaining organs. Following this type or treatment, you may even qualify for a transplant which could increase the quality fo your life following a serious injury or illness.
