The postoperative organic blief base dimension scores of the patients were significantly higher than preoperative scores (Z=-5.877; p=0.000). The patients’ preoperative thoughts of that the pain occurs due to physiological, physio-pathological and psychological reasons did not change and did become stronger after the operations. The preoperative VAS scores (5,63±2,96) were significantly higher than preoperative VAS scores (4,52±3,13) (p=0,000). Vas scores of orthopedia clinic patients were higher than other clinics patients. According to MAÖ-KF, 48.8% of patients had severe pain and this pain was throbbing in general (28.3%).

In conclusion, the pain belief differences of patients who did not experience surgical procedure before should be integrated to nursing care applications and new studies should be carried out including all surgical clinics.
