Spleens
Apparently mine did the same thing. After it ruptured (when I was 12) I lived my entire life "spleen less," until my appendix decieded it too wanted to leave my body and it was discovered I actually had many little spleens-attached all around the abdominal cavity...I've never had any spleen related problems.
