Stomach inflation after eating spicy food post spleen removal. Is this a common occurrence?

Had my spleen removed 03/13/12. Went to San Antonio the 03/22/12 on my last day there (03/27/12) I blew up like a balloon. Right from the airport to the hospital. Prednozone pills and 3 days of looking like a cartoon character. I had allot of mexican food while I was there. Can t pinpoint what I ate that would have caused it. I stay away from Spicy foods. Is this a common occurance?
