It is possible that this could not be good. my measure is usually "if you have to ask, you probably shouldn't be the one to decide". Also, there is no way that anyone that isn't qualified, AND at your house looking at it could tell you how to proceed with all safety and certainty. All this said, it is LIKELY that you will probably be able to remove a stud and put a structural header to hold the are where it was quite easily. Ther person to advise you has to see it with his own eyes to know for sure.
