Purpose In patients who are hospitalized for surgery, anxiety disorders are frequently observed. Anxiety affects the patient's perception of postoperative pain and has a negative impact on recovery from anesthesia. This study attempted to compare the effect of preoperative anxiety on postoperative pain control and recovery from anesthesia in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
