    Ruptured Spleen

    What's a ruptured spleen? My mate Phil got one at a competition in Reading the other weekend. I didn't ask him what one was though, cause I thought I'd sound more stupid than normal. Damn back kicks.

    Lovely. We should probably spar with less contact but then everyone would shout "TKD sucks 'cause you don't hit hard enough!" wait, they do anyway.

    Under any given circumstance, at any given time, in any given place: TKD still sucks.

    So presumably he was telling you from the hospital?

    "...
    Untreated, a ruptured spleen can result in death, so it requires urgent medical and surgical treatment. Immediate blood transfusions are given to maintain an adequate blood supply to the organs of the body, and emergency surgery is performed to stop the leak of blood.
    Sometimes, if the rupture is only small, it's possible for the surgeon to repair the spleen. However, usually the entire spleen needs to be removed in an operation called a splenectomy. ..."

    For those in the States or who watch the NFL, think Chris Simms of Tampa Bay (almost died).

    No he came to squad the next weekend with his brother, can't take part for 6 months though :( so hospital say. They didn't have to remove his spleen so I don't what they did with it. He sort of deserves it though, he's a Southerner. But now he can't be in the ITF World Championships next year, when they are in our country :( unlucky for him.

    Can't remember all the details now......but as I recall reading pro wrestler Ox Baker once killed a guy in a match when he ruptured the guy's spleen. For some reason he speared the guy with his knee who on his back on tha canvas. It was an accident but it shows to some extent how vunerable the human body can be.
