I did not feel anything from the spleen, but I had a lot of other issues.
I had no idea what one was or what could happen if you screwed it up.
It was my ortho doc who clued me in when he looked at my info and said I was lucky to be alive.
If you fall hard enough to damage the spleen, usually something else would hurt enough to mask any pain you might feel from the spleen, and it likely does not hurt till your innards fill up with blood.

Still have the scar from removal plus from the hose in my left side, draining the excess blood; almost didn't make it.
