The investigators found that patients identified sources of stress at preoperative, in-hospital recovery and postoperative stages. Sources of stress included, but were not limited to: emotional reaction to diagnosis, negative emotional reaction to having a surgery, dealing with distressing physical symptoms and complications after surgery.
