I recently had an MRI for an unrelated matter when there was comment about a substantial scar and question about abdominal surgery. I said I had had a bad horse riding accident at 9 and had a splenectomy - common practice for a ruptured spleen in 1961, just scoop it all out. It apparently regrew and is a normal healthy spleen. Also I had my tonsils out at 5 (standard procedure in the 50's) and found in my 20's that they had regrown. My mother, now 88, had her tonsils out as a child and they regrew as well. I am curious to know how frequently this occurs in the population, I have only known of my mother and myself to regrow tonsils and was surprised, and rather pleased, my spleen made a complete reappearance.
