    You can live without a stomach, without a spleen, with 80% of your liver removed, with 1 and 7/8 of your kidneys removed, and without an esophagus, without your colon, with a small part of the 6m small intestine!!!! our bodies are magic!!! just thank god for them, for you question specifically, the spleen can be removed in many surgeries its no big problem, but there is little increase in the risk of getting infections, and the stomach is removed in surgeries for gastric ulcer, or cancer, the removal can be partial or total, it can also be removed in surgeries for weight loss
