I had no packing, but I have read that some do. Not sure if it depends on just the Dr, or the individual, but I had a TVH. Your Dr could tell you what to expect in your case. I am curious as to why some get it and some don't.

6 weeks PO here, I didn't have packing but was told it's just what some drs do. I was also told if you have more than usual bleeding from surgery they may pack.

When I went for pre-op this morning I asked about that. I was told that not to expect packing.
