More info needed: This depends entirely on the cause of the liver problem and whether it is progressing to cirrhosis (or might already be there). If the enlarged spleen is due to portal hypertension -- increased pressure in liver veins -- it could be pretty advanced. This is something to discuss with your doctor.
