  1. HADS = Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale; SCL = Symptom Checklist; NS = not significant; Q-LES-Q = Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire
  2. a 7 items, 4 point scale from 0 to 3 for each item, total score is sum of the scores on each of the 7 items, range of total score is 0-21, score interpretation: non-cases for anxiety/depression (≤ 7), doubtful cases for anxiety/depression (8-10) and definite cases for anxiety/depression (≥11)
  3. b 12 items, 5-point Likert scale (score from 1 to 5), total scores is sum of the scores on each of the 12 items, range of total score is 12-60, the higher the score the more the patient was hindered by somatic symptoms
  4. c 14 items, 5-point Likert scale (score from 1 to 5), score is expressed as the percentage of the maximum score, the higher the score the more satisfied the patient was
  5. d 1 item, 5-point Likert scale (score from 1 to 5), score is expressed as the percentage of the maximum score, the higher the score the more satisfied the patient was
