Abstract

Purpose: to assess health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with intestinal ostomies secondary to colorectal cancer in Aracaju-Sergipe.
Methods: a three-part tool was used: socio-demographic and clinical components, Flanagan's Quality of Life Scale (QOLS) and EORTC-QLQ-C30. Findings were as follows: 38.9% rectal, 33.3% colorectal, and 27.8% colonic tumors. Metastases were present in 83.3%; no metastases were found in 16.7%. Colostomies were permanent in 72.2% and temporary in 27.8%.
Results: overall quality of life is poor; it appears lower for recreation and higher for relationship with others. According to EORTC QLQ-C30, mean general health is poor, due to metastases, ostomy complications, pain, and insomnia.
Conclusions: such a negative assessment could be improved by a right position for ostomy adjustment, appropriate psychological approach, specialized therapy  aimed at reaching a high satisfaction level and/or adjustment to make the patient feel "healthy".
