Anxiety In Children Prior To Surgery Might Complicate Recovery

Study finds that children who are anxious before surgery have a more complicated recovery process.

The personality characteristics of the children and their parents were assessed before the surgery. All of the children were admitted to a research unit at Yale following the surgery and postoperative pain and analgesic consumption were recorded every hour.
