Abstract:
Topic: Fatigue is the most common stress response among cancer patients and multidimensional phenomena that is composed of psychosocial factor as well as physiologic factor. Because the Intensity and pattern of fatigue are various according to the cancer type, treatment and regimen, they should be understood prior to offer fatigue intervention. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the pattern of fatigue and its related factors in patients with gastric cancer during chemotherapy using a 5-FU and Adriamycin regimen. Framework: This study was based on the Piper's Integrative Fatigue Model. Methods: Thirty participants (24 males and 6 females) were recruited for this study with a longitudinal and descriptive approach. The research instruments were the Revised Piper Fatigue Scale, Symptom Distress Scale and Linear Analogue Self Assessment Scale. The patients received 5-FU and Adriamycin at the first week, 5-FU at the second week and 5-FU at the third week. The measurements were taken six times in total, as follows: Within 2 hours right after the first 5-FU and Adriamycin infusion (one); Three days after the initial infusion above (two); Within 2 hours after the second and third 5-FU infusion respectively (three and five); And three days after the second and third 5-FU infusion above (four and six). Data were analyzed by repeated measure ANOVA and Pearson correlation. Findings: It was found out that the fatigue score in patients, receiving chemotherapy using 5-FU and Adriamycin regimen, reached the highest level on the third day after the initial infusion, but decreased continuously after it. The symptom and psychological distress scores showed the very similar pattern. Multidimensionality of fatigue scale was supported in this study, in that all the four dimensions of the scale were positively correlated. The results of this study can also provide gastric cancer patients with some information on fatigue and other symptoms that they may experience during chemotherapy.
