I've only done month long hikes, so take this with a grain of salt.
One year, my biggest problem was unceasing rain.
One year, my biggest problem was loneliness. Turns out I don't so
much like hiking alone anymore.
One year, my problem was Lyme Disease.
None of them sent me home very early. Generally I got off the trail
at the most convenient pickup point closest to the end of my scheduled
time off. :)
Things that happened but weren't big problems for me: dislocated
bones, poison ivy, stomach flu, big blisters, foot pain.
