Abstract: Poor physical function pre-operatively correlates with psychological distress. Both physical and psychological symptoms improve after surgery. Physical outcome after surgery is strongly influenced by pre-operative physical functioning but not independently by psychological distress. Anxious and depressed patients should continue to be offered surgery if clinically indicated.
