The Results Of Taking A Fastball To The Nuts Are As Horrifying As You Can Imagine
"Back on May 5, our unfortunate Yadier Molina took a deflected 102-mph fastball directly to the dick and balls, organs which baseball decorum demand be dangled near home plate with alarming precarity. He was rushed into surgery for an injury that the St. Louis Post-Dispatch referred to as a “traumatic hematoma.” Given the location of trauma and subsequent bleeding, we can deduce that Yadi was whisked under the knife to deal with a scrotum full of blood."
"So, what does a testicle expert think about Molina’s injury?"

LASIK: Blurred Vision, Burning Eyes - This Is Success? ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩
... Nearly half of all people who had healthy eyes before Lasik developed visual aberrations for the first time after the procedure, the trial found. Nearly one-third developed dry eyes, a complication that can cause serious discomfort, for the first time. ...

Other recent studies suggest Lasik patients may also be at increased risk for long-term eye complications, including possibly requiring earlier cataract surgery and developing a serious vision-threatening condition called corneal ectasia.

Lasik can also interfere with the detection of glaucoma, or the buildup of pressure within the eye that, if left untreated, can lead to blindness. ...

She said after Lasik, all people lose contrast sensitivity, the ability to distinguish between shades of gray, to some degree. It is an elective procedure, she emphasized, that does not provide any benefits that cannot be obtained with glasses or contact lenses. ...

Other eye surgeries, like cataract surgery, can have the same effect.

“Every single time you do surgery and cut into tissue, you damage nerves. It doesn’t matter if it’s breast surgery or eye surgery,” said Dr. Anat Galor, an associate professor of clinical ophthalmology at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami.

“We have sensory nerves all over our body, and the cornea is one of the most heavily innervated organs in the body, so it is a little more sensitive to nerve damage.” ...

Among those who may be at risk are people with large pupils; thin corneas, abnormally shaped corneas or other corneal abnormalities or scarring; high degrees of astigmatism; severe dry eye; and possibly people who have other sensitivities, pain syndromes or neurological disorders, frequent headaches or anxiety and depression. ...

CRSToday | An Unrelenting Dark Crescent
The dark crescent so common after cataract surgery is explained. I experienced this in both eyes. Mostly, after a couple of years, I don't notice it most of the time. It was very annoying for a fairly long time. Really a good read, although much of it is too technical for me.

How pancreatic cancer spreads after surgery - Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
After surgery, patients typically experience a two-week period during which their immune system is depleted as a result of a surge in post-operative stress hormone (cortisol) levels. With killer T-cell levels sagging, isolated, dormant cancer cells that have already traveled to the liver and possibly other organs via the bloodstream begin to grow or metastasize.
