    Patients evaluated with different questionnaire.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Ox-PAQ [ Time Frame: One year ]
    It contains 23 items, each measured on a five-point Likert scale. Each of the 23 items is scored in the same direction (0=Never, 1=Rarely, 2=Sometimes, 3=Often, 4=Always). Also, Ox-PAQ consist of three domains, Routine Activities (14 items: nos. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, 13,14,16,17), Social Engagement (4 items: nos. 11,12,15,18) and Emotional Well-Being (5 items: nos. 19,20,21,22,23). Raw scores of Ox-PAQ are transformed to a range from 0 to 100. The formula for scoring each dimension is as follows: sum of scores of each question in dimension/ ((4 x number of questions in dimension) x 100) (10). Higher scores reflect greater problems with activity and participation.
