  1. Legend: Multivariable analysis shows the effect of county on postoperative PROs, adjusted for sex, age, BMI, Elixhauser comorbidity index, marital status, educational level, disposable income and preoperative PROs. Västmanland (county closest to national mean values) was used as a reference value. Higher values of EQ-5D and EQ VAS indicate better results. In contrary, higher values of pain and satisfaction VAS indicate worse results
