Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this study investigated the effects of preoperative uncertainty and anxiety on recovery after total knee or hip replacement. 

Methods: The study was a longitudinal design. Data collection with the structured questionnaires, including demographic and disease characteristics, the Chinese version of Mishel Uncertainty in illness Scale and situational anxiety Scale before the surgery day. The Quality of Recovery-40 Scale in the postoperative day 4, before discharge and the first outpatient day.Data analysis methods include descriptive statistics and inferential statistics including Generalized Estimated Equation (GEE) single-variable regression analysis, GEE hierarchical regression analysis to p<.05 was statistically significant.

 Results: We will further investigate the effects of preoperative uncertainty and anxiety on recovery after total knee or hip replacement, even adjustment of the demographic characteristics, disease characteristics, postoperative days, and the interaction postoperative days and pre-operative anxiety, the interaction postoperative days and uncertainty. The pre-operative anxiety and uncertainty still has a negative impact on postoperative recovery.

 Conclusion: The  clinical findings can provide a reference for nurses caring for elder patients to enhance the quality of postoperative recovery, thus improving the quality of life after returning home.
