In brief: Depends
If you have a ruptured spleen and get to hospital on time to be treated you will have a normal life; however, if splenectomy is performed, you will need to be vaccinated against encapsulated bacteria because you will be very susceptible to develop infections from such bacteria once you have no spleen.

It depends on how bad the rupture is, how soon you get to the doctor, etc.
