Abstract

Objective: To investigate the effect of yoga and psychological intervention on cancer-related fatigue in cervical cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Methods: Eighty-three cervical cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy were divided into a control group (n=38) and an observation group (n=45) according to the order of admission. The results of quality of life scale, anxiety and depression scores of the 2nd, 4th and 6th chemotherapy sessions after the intervention. Results: The total fatigue during and after chemotherapy was higher in the observation group than in the control group (P<0.05); the SF-36 Brief Quality of Life Scale scores of patients in the observation group were better than those of the control group after the intervention, and the difference was statistically significant; the mental health patents of the observation group were significantly better than those of the control group after the intervention (P<0.05); the anxiety and depression scores of patients in the two groups were not statistically significant (P>0.05); the anxiety and depression scores of patients in the two groups were compared, and the difference was not statistically significant (P>0.05). The anxiety and significance scores of the observation group after the 4th and 6th chemotherapy were significantly lower than those of the 2nd chemotherapy and lower than those of the control group (P<0.05). Conclusion: The combination of yoga and psychological intervention in cervical cancer patients during chemotherapy can relieve cancer-induced fatigue, improve patients’ quality of life, and contribute to disease recovery.
