  1. Length of hospital and ICU stay, Distress, pain, mental component score (SF-36) and the physical component score (SF-36) at 6 weeks, and distress, pain, mental component score (SF-36) physical component score (SF-36), and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Colorectal (FACT-C) at 6 months were not reported in the table due to presenting p > 0.05 in the univariate analysis
