1 doctor agrees
In brief: This is plenty
The number one thing to worry about in a head injury is the brain.
This is also the number 2 and 3 and 4 etc thing to worry about. The brain is the most complex organ in the body. Lots of things can go wrong and often do. Answering this question fills books.. Eyes, ears, mouth, jaws can be injured too but the effects are usually obvious soon after, while brain injury may not appear for months.
