Regarding the necessity of reducing and eliminating these consequences, the study was conducted to investigate the consequences of surgery in patients with liver cancer.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive study was performed on 53 patients with liver cancer referred to Imam Khomeini Hospital Complex in Tehran using the available sampling method from November 2019 to June 2020. During the study, Functional Cancer Questionnaire, Hospital Anxiety, and Depression Scale, Fatigue Severity, Edmonton Symptom Evaluation, and Demographic Characteristics were used in two stages (before and one month after the treatment). Data were analyzed using SPSS 21, descriptive statistics, Pair T-test, and correlation.
Results: Fatigue, loss of appetite, pain, anxiety, sleep disturbances, and other problems were significantly increased in comparison with the pre-treatment period (p˂0.05). There was a significant relationship between these outcomes and the quality of life of the patients (p˂0.001).
