Anatomic spleen is not totally equivalent to TCM spleen.
In modern medicine, spleen is a large vascular lymphoid organ.
In TCM, spleen is described as a functional unit that involves many vital activities of the body.
Spleen removal mainly results in low immune resistance and blood component disorder; from a TCM view, there will have qi deficiency (mostly lung qi deficiency) and blood stasis. Therefore appropriate herbs should be included. Also herbs that can relieve joint pain are beneficial.
