This is the spleen of a person who suffers from thalassemia!

Splenectomy does not cure the disease, or last the life of the patient! It is a treatment targeted in prolonging the life of red blood cells, so that the patient can have a longer time without transfusion. However, your doctor should tell you that after removing your spleen, you are more prone to infections!
