This study was planned to determine the factors affecting fatigue in cancer patients with different ambulation levels. 36 individuals were included in the study between the ages of 18-65. Nineteen patients who achieved independent ambulation in Group 1, and 17 patients who failed to provide ambulatory independence in Group 2 were included. Demographic information, disease history and routine hematologic outcomes were recorded. Fatigue was assessed by Brief Fatigue Inventory, muscle strength was assesed by Commander Muscle Tester and Jamar Hand Dynamometer, Physical Activity Level was assessed by Physical activity in Inpatient Rehabilitation Assesment, anxiety and depression level was assessed by Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, sleep quality was assessed by Pittsbugh Sleep Quality Scale. The respiratory parameters were assessed by thoracic mobility and respiratory frequency. It was found that fatigue level in group 2 were higher than group 1. It was found that decreased muscle strength, thoracal mobility and low sleep quality were caused fatigue in group 1. It was found that high anxiety and depression level caused fatigue in group 2. There was no difference between two groups at the hematological parameters. As a result of the study, protection of ambulation is very important in preventing fatigue and different parameters cause fatigue in patients without ambulation and ambulation. While physiological factors such as inadequate muscle strength, respiratory function, sleep quality and physical activity level were found to cause fatigue in ambulatory patients, psychological factors such as high anxiety and depression level in nonambulatory patients were found to cause fatigue.
