Abstract
Modern healthcare strive for efficiency by implementing fast-track programmes to optimize postoperative recovery. When forming new health care interventions, it is important to consider the patient perspective. Breast cancer patients in Sweden are treated according to a standardized care plan to optimize postoperative recovery. Previous studies indicate that women of different age groups experience postoperative recovery differently, where female sex hormones might play a part. A questionnaire regarding postoperative pain, nausea/vomiting and sense of participation was submitted to women undergoing breast cancer surgery at two different hospitals in Skåne, Sweden. The aim was to compare two age groups of women undergoing breast cancer... (More)
Modern healthcare strive for efficiency by implementing fast-track programmes to optimize postoperative recovery. When forming new health care interventions, it is important to consider the patient perspective. Breast cancer patients in Sweden are treated according to a standardized care plan to optimize postoperative recovery. Previous studies indicate that women of different age groups experience postoperative recovery differently, where female sex hormones might play a part. A questionnaire regarding postoperative pain, nausea/vomiting and sense of participation was submitted to women undergoing breast cancer surgery at two different hospitals in Skåne, Sweden. The aim was to compare two age groups of women undergoing breast cancer surgery; ages 18-51 and 52 years and over, and their experience of fast-track surgery, specifically in regards to anesthesia and postoperative care. Eleven women between the ages of 18-51 and eighteen of 52 years and older participated. The older age group rated lower on the Numeric Scale Rating for postoperative pain, while at the same time requiring less of the intraoperative analgesic Remifentanil. The younger age group reported that a higher NRS score required analgesics than the older age group. The prevalence of postoperative nausea and/or vomiting was low, and sense of participation was high. (Less)
