The case group consisted of 119 in patients who were diagnosed with cancer and hospitalized in the surgery department.

In the case group patients, 33.6% were diagnosed with stomach cancer, 54.6% were in Stage II of cancer, 98.3% underwent surgical treatment and 28% underwent chemotherapy, 89.7% had treatment-related pain, 52.9% had a chronic disease together with cancer, 63% had their sleep quality partially influenced by environmental factors.
