Hi, I am having the big surgery in a few days and I am really concerned about the after care. My doctor isn't sure if he is going to leave it opened or closed, so I won't know until it is all said and done. Anyway, this whole "packing" thing really freaks me out. I hate blood, pus, and PAIN. EEEK! So, how bad does the "packing" hurt and is it as bad as I imagine it to be. Please help.
