I had to have my spleen removed, should I be concerned with continuing my practice as a nail tech?


A few months ago I was in a traffic accident and had to have my ruptured spleen removed. I’m a nail technician with my own salon and I am afraid I am endangering my health through constant contact with nail chemicals and with clients. Should I be concerned with continuing my practice as a nail tech?


The loss of your spleen should not have any impact on your ability to continue your career as a nail technician. I do not believe the chemicals in your workplace pose any particular problems for people with a spleenectomy. It is important for all of us to be careful with environmental hazards in our homes and workplaces, but nail technicians who practice with care are not at higher risks than others. — Dr. Rich
