Evaluation of fatigue-related kinesiophobia and associated factors in individuals with lung cancer with and without respiratory comorbidity
Aim: To investigate fatigue-related kinesiophobia and associated factors in individuals with lung cancer.
Methods: A total of 52 individuals were included in the study and the individuals were divided into two groups, each consisting of 26 individuals. Charlson comorbidity index, Brief Fatigue Inventory, modified Medical Research Council dyspnea scale, Tampa Kinesiophobia Scale-Fatigue are applied as data collection tools.
Results: The individuals in the study had similar demographic characteristics. There was no difference between the groups in the study in terms of fatigue-related kinesiophobia. There was a difference between the pain and performance status of the individuals in the study in activities of daily living (p<0.05).
Conclusion: At the end of this study, it was observed that individuals with lung cancer with respiratory comorbidity had worse pain, fatigue and performance values in activities of daily living, while kinesiophobia values related to fatigue were similar.
