Purpose: observe the influence of continuing nursing on the cancer-related fatigue and the life quality of postoperative breast cancer patients Method: choose 40 postoperative breast cancer patients received and cured in this inpatient department from January 15, 2016 to March 12, 2017; divide them into two groups in the way of random sampling: observation group – 20 cases (with continuing nursing) and control group - 20 cases (with usual nursing); observe the grades of the cancer-related fatigue, quality of life, anxiety and depression of the patients in the two groups. Results: the grades of the patients' cancer-related fatigue in the observation group (it is 5.01±1.25 1 month after operation and 3.54±0.45 2 months after operation) are less than that in the control group (P<0.05); the grades of the patients' quality of life in the observation group (role function: 91.44±6.33, body function: 90.26±6.25, social function: 88.43±5.45, and emotional function) are more than that in the control group (P<0.05); and the grades of the patients' anxiety (35.10±6.01) and depression (34.12±5.85) in the observation group are obviously less than that in the control group (P<0.05). Conclusion: the application of continuing nursing for postoperative breast cancer patients is significantly effective, which not only can improve the degree of the postoperative cancer-related fatigue effectively and the quality of life fundamentally, but also can alleviate the patients' negative emotions and improve the nursing satisfaction. Therefore, it is worth being popularized and applied clinically. Introduction
