jan, I'm really sorry to hear that you had such a bad day and that you ended up passing out. The only time I had a swollen spleen was when I had mono many many years ago and it later returned to normal, so I don't know what can happen if it keeps becoming larger and larger. It really sounds like a call to your doctor would be a good thing considering how bad things got yesterday.
Hang in there and take care
