Women's experience of acute and chronic pain following breast cancer surgery.

Abstract:

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:To gain knowledge of how women experience pain and pain treatment after breast cancer surgery and to identify areas of pain management that they believe could be improved. BACKGROUND:According to the literature, 20-60% of patients develop chronic pain after breast cancer surgery and treatment. Because of the short length of hospitalisation in Norway, breast cancer patients are left responsible for most of their own pain management. DESIGN:An explorative and qualitative design was chosen. METHODS:In-depth interviews were conducted with eight women who experienced chronic pain rated at 3-5 on a 11-point numerical rating scale one year or more after breast cancer surgery. This study is part of a larger, quantitative study assessing pain after surgery. The interviews were taped, transcribed and analysed according to qualitative content analysis. RESULTS:The interviewees had expected pain in the acute postoperative period, but had not expected that pain would persist. None of the women recalled having received information about pain. They took few analgesics and were generally sceptical about medication, mostly because of earlier reactions to drugs. They received no explanations for and little help with chronic pain. Most of them were active and worked outside the home. CONCLUSIONS:After short hospital stays, adequate information and follow-up after discharge may optimise pain management regimens. Those who develop chronic pain need more information and help to manage their pain. RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL PRACTICE:Finding the appropriate time for information about postoperative pain management is necessary to optimise a good analgesic regimen. Multimodal and aggressive treatment of acute pain should be emphasised.
