And it's not 5 months ^o)
I know it's a minimum of a week, but like the usual time :|
I'm assuming that you have had your spleen removed when it ruptured. In which case your stay in hospital for about a week.
The recovery time itself is much longer and there are some important health issues if you don't have a spleen. Your spleen helps you fight infection.
This link should be a leaflet containing information from the department of health about living without a spleen.
7-10 days in hospital assuming that there are no other injuries that occured at the same time. Full recovery in 6 weeks.
