Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
No,i dont think this is indiaction for spkenectomy. The right diagnosis should be established and then some invasive procedure can be considered. Some common disease which can cause sucg pain are gastritis, gerd or hiatal hernia. SO I suggest to rule these out first.
Wish you good health. Regards
