Packing or no packing?

I am having a TAH. I never thought to ask my doctor if i will be packed. Do they do that for all types of hysterectomies?

No packing for TLH-BSO. TAH was likely but not necessary. I asked for no packing and dr said she was not planning on it anyway. I didn't want anything taken out through my v but in the end she had to. So far, so good. Ask your dr lots of questions!

I was not packed, but I had some post op bleeding about a week later which required packing. It was not pleasant. Honestly it was awful. I would not want to be packed again. It was worse than having a catheter put in and taken out.

I think it's generally up to the doctor's discretion and may be determined by how much internal work/bleeding you have. I had a DvH and did have packing that was removed the following morning.

I had TAH no packing, I did bleed alot after until I first got up--dizzy and weak. After that bleeding slowed down and I only had to use aliner for about 5 days after that.

I didn't have any packing. The bleeding pretty much stopped on the second day, just a bit of spotting for about three days after that.
