The answers were collected by phone. Women gained better results for Physical Functioning (p<0.003) and men estimated better scores for psychical health (p<0.001). Our patients gained some different results in respect to the Croatian sample of healthy people of the same age. They declared better General Health (p<0.001), less Bodily Pain (p<0.001), but inferior Role-Emotion (p<0.001) and Social Functioning (p<0.001). The estimations of QOL improving were comparable with the results of numerous shorter follow-ups.
