Detailed Answer:
Hii..hope you are doing well. It is common to have mild sippage from nasal pack from severe bleed. If it stops when you don't make movements it is fine. If you are having continuous sippage on movements then it's alarming. It you are spitting blood continuously then consult doctor else it's fine.

Does it mean that since only one nostril was packed that it is anterior or still could it be posterior. Are the outcomes in the end still the same for both. Prognosis. Scared.

Brief Answer:
As sipage is anteriorly then bleeding is anterior, if bleeding is posterior

Detailed Answer:
As sipage is anteriorly then bleeding is anteriorly, if bleeding is posteriorly then you will have continuous blood spitting. Bleeding from one nose don't go to another nose. So it is anterior bleeding from one nose. Small sipage is fine, stops over time. If it is continuous then consult a doctor.
