A 30-min DVD was developed which included general information on pain management as well as a section on guided imagery using sounds and images.
- Level of pain intensity [ Time Frame: Level of pain intensity at two weeks after the surgery ]Pain was measured before the patients left the hospital on their 7th postoperative day (T-1, time of discharge from hospital). It was measured again at two week post-discharge (T-2) and also at one month post-discharge (T-3) on their visit to the orthopedic clinic. Our primary outcome was at T-2.
- Level of anxiety [ Time Frame: Level of anxiety from 24-hrs before the surgery, to two weeks and to one month after the surgery ]Anxiety was measured as baseline data on the pre-operative visit (24 hrs before surgery). It was also measured at two weeks post-discharge and at one month on the day of the visit to the orthopedic clinic.
- Level of coping [ Time Frame: Level of coping from Baseline (pre-operative), to two weeks and to one month after the surgery ]Coping strategies of adolescents regarding their pain management were also measured pre-operatively (24 hrs before surgery), at two weeks and one month post-surgery.
