Cancer and Oncology Q 84

A male client complains of sporadic epigastric pain, yellow skin, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and fatigue. Suspecting gallbladder disease, the physician orders a diagnostic workup, which reveals gallbladder cancer. Which nursing diagnosis may be appropriate for this client?
    A. Chronic low self-esteem
    B. Disturbed body image
    C. Anticipatory grieving
    D. Impaired swallowing

Correct Answer: C. Anticipatory grieving

Option C: Anticipatory grieving is an appropriate nursing diagnosis for this client because few clients with gallbladder cancer live more than 1 year after diagnosis.

Option A: Chronic low self-esteem isn’t an appropriate nursing diagnosis at this time because the diagnosis has just been made.
Option B: Although surgery typically is done to remove the gallbladder and, possibly, a section of the liver, it isn’t disfiguring and doesn’t cause Disturbed body image.
Option D: Impaired swallowing isn’t associated with gallbladder cancer.
