Adam Dunn of the White Sox returned from laparascopic emergency appendectomies in about one week in 2011.
The appendix is totally useless, not unlike Jason Heyward in the Braves lineup.
I lost my appendix in Greece.
Wow, the Sox were lucky he was able to get back on the field so quickly.
My ex-wife had a lap procedure to remove her gall bladder several years ago. They were wrapping up and starting to bring her up from the anesthesia when the doc nicked something and she started bleeding quite the gusher (or so we were told). They had to restart the anesthesia and open her all the way up across her abdomen to get it under control followed by a couple days in ICU then another 3 or so in a regular room. Later they told us she damn near bled out on the table.
All this to say, I wonder how often this kind of thing happens and should we maybe not treat lap procedures so lightly?
There's an old adage that there's no such thing as minor surgery.
Speaking of Adam Dunn: is he, at this point, (sorry) done? 3 singles in 73 PA's, and an OPS+ of 6?
