spleens not bad, it can bleed like stink, but it's relatively small and non-essential so your recovery time could plausibly be quicker than a major artery or the liver. I'm an ER nurse so post op course is not my area, two weeks maybe pretty optimistic. nitpick/ we don't shock a stopped heart, only a fibrillating one, ie disorganized movement/nitpick
