Shaking, sweating, vomiting after drinking alcohol. Spleen removed through surgery. Causes?

My dad had his spleen removed over a year ago. He very rarely drinks alcohol. He had a mixed drink a week ago, with maybe a shot of alcohol in it. He got so sick. Shakes, sweat, throwing up. We think it obviously has something to do with not having a spleen, because he has never had this reaction before. He said he will never drink again. Souldn t be a problem considering he isn t a drinker. Just wondering if you have ever seen this same reaction in others missing spleens?
