It is a descriptive case study with a qualitative approach, using open interview and engaging with nine women from a support group of mastectomized women in Niterói-RJ-Brazil. It was observed that the expectation related to the nurse, who must be professional technically competentc and understnad the moment the patients are going through. In terms of the nurse's action: women related that some of their doubts were qualmed, which was essential during the post-surgery,by technical procedures and giving emotional support.
