Surgeons Reveal Their "Oh Sh*t" Moments

When you go under the knife, you assume that the highly-skilled surgeons know exactly what they're doing once they cut you open. Of course, you hope that the margins for error are minimum and that you will wake up with all your body parts intact, as they should be (unless you're in a Saw movie). But even surgeons encounter "oh shit" moments, and Reddit's surgeons are revealing all their scary experiences where things almost took a drastic turn for the worst. If you have an upcoming surgery, this probably isn't for you.
