In brief: Depends

A ruptured spleen can range from very serious, even life threatening to relatively minor event depending on the reasons for the rupture and the initial care.
In general, your team of docs wants to see that your blood counts are stable, your bowels are working, you are willing and able to care for yourself at home, pain is under control. Ok to ask your care team.
