Abstract [en]

Aims. The main purpose of this study was to analyse, prospectively, patient symptoms during the first four weeks following elective colon surgery. A secondary aim was to find areas to improve inpatient information and postoperative care.

Background. Fast-track recovery following colon surgery has been proven beneficial to patients in the early postoperative phase. Less is known about the continuous recovery at home.

Design. A prospective follow-up survey.

Methods. Consecutive patients (n = 32) planned for elective colon surgery were evaluated. Both open and laparoscopic operations were included. All followed a fast-track protocol in hospital. Patient symptoms were recorded by validated quality of life questionnaires (EORTC QLQ-C 30, EORTC QLQ-CR 38 and Brief Pain Inventory). An interview was conducted five weeks and one year after surgery.

Results. The hospital stay was six days, and 10% of patients were readmitted. The fast-track concept worked well. The main problems after discharge were fatigue, nausea and bowel disturbances. Pain was not a significant issue. Most symptoms had disappeared after four weeks.

Conclusions. The first period at home is troublesome, and better information about common symptoms is needed. A direct telephone line has been set up to answer questions and to lower patient anxiety.

Relevance to clinical practice. Clinical guidelines for patient’s discharge planning can be performed based on the results from this study. Further improvement regarding the epidural anaesthesia is needed to reduce minor side effects.
