There was also meaningful difference of time movement in the experience group and the patients of this group started movement and activity sooner than the witness groups (p<0.001). In the other hand the witness groups themselves had asked for the pain relief injections while the other groups had received it as the usual ward medication, the witness group in the first and second 24 hours after the surgery received more pain relief injections (p<0.05).
