packing or no packing?

I am into my 9th day of recovery and Im still getting alot of pelvic pressure as well as lower left pain, could I possibley have packing in me and dont know it? Do they only pack you after having certin types of procedures? Would I know if I myself had packing in me? I tried to feel it but the DR tightened up my muscles down there,do you think that maybe thats what im feeling?

Re: packing or no packing?

I'd suggest calling your dr who performed surgery and asking.
I'm 4 days post op..and did have packing but they told me that I did have it as soon as I woke up and make sure it was removed before I left the hospital..I really wasn't aware of it until the nurse said "after I remove the packing, you'll feel less pressure"..
I would really suggest calling in to your surgeon; especially if they haven't given you any instructions as to when it should be removed!
