“…The findings of the present study are in agreement with the literature, indicating high scores for the quality of life and overall health of women with breast cancer. 7,9 In a general way, adjuvant treatment is related to a reduced quality of life, 9,17 but the negative effects resulting from systemic treatment are mainly perceived during treatment due to the appearance of the symptoms such as pain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and changes in the emotional function, 9,18 and tend to progressively improve with time, after the treatment ends. 17 Therefore, the low symptom score, covered by the EORTC 30 dimension, by the patients, was expected since they were no longer under treatment, despite the high frequency of adjuvant therapy done by these women in our study.…”

“…Amaral et al 21 também evidenciaram o "aspecto físico" como o mais afetado na qualidade de vida das pacientes com câncer de mama, uma vez que os tratamentos trazem, por vezes, consequências nas funções físicas dos pacientes e necessidade de reduzir as atividades diárias, pois acarreta efeitos colaterais desagradáveis. Os dados encontrados na pesquisa de Lôbo et al 23 demonstraram que as funções físicas não foram consideradas prejudicadas, apresentando elevados escores. Os autores levantaram a hipótese de que as funções não foram afetadas de forma prejudicial, porquanto a maior parte das pacientes não estava acamada, não necessitava de ajuda para as atividades diárias nem apresentava limitações para realizar as atividades de lazer, então, as condições físicas e o tratamento não interferiram na vida familiar tampouco nas atividades sociais.…”

“…Contudo, outros estudos demonstram que os homens pontuaram mais na satisfação com o apoio social em comparação com as mulheres 11,20 . Por sua vez, a QV foi verificada como satisfatória e/ou boa, apresentando o domínio emocional como mais prejudicado, decorrentes dos medos e preocupações, assim como não mostrou haver diferenças entre os sexos [21][22][23] . Também foi evidenciado que o domínio físico obteve as menores médias, sugerindo limitações físicas, por consequência dos tratamentos 21 , entretanto, se os pacientes não estão acamados, observaram-se boas pontuações nesses domínios 23 .…”

“…Despite this, some women opt for not reconstructing their breasts, usually because they are afraid of going through additional surgeries, they lack information or do not have the security needed to decide on this aspect in the space of time between diagnosis and surgery 8,9 . Numerous studies have shown the negative repercussions of breast CA treatment on pain, functionality and QoL 10,11 . Other studies indicate the improvement in the QoL of women who underwent breast reconstruction 5,12 , especially regarding the emotional aspect 13 , however, in our research, we did not find any studies that compare pain, functionality and QoL of women who underwent immediate breast reconstruction versus those who did not.…”
