The way back : A literature study on women's experiences of living with breast cancer after completed treatment. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Bröstcancer är den vanligast förekommande cancersjukdomen bland kvinnor. Tidig diagnostik och behandling ökar chansen att överleva bröstcancer. I processen att avsluta behandling och gå vidare i livet kan psykiska och fysiska upplevelser påverka kvinnors vardag, i samband med detta kan de uppleva ett fortsatt behov av stöd.

Syfte: Syftet med studien är att beskriva kvinnors upplevelser av att leva med bröstcancer efter avslutad behandling.

Metod: Litteraturstudie med kvalitativ ansats där 12 studier som svarade på syftet valts ut. En kvalitativ analys gjordes av materialet som sedan sammanställdes i kategorier och underkategorier.

Resultatet: Resultatet visar att kvinnor har olika fysiska och psykiska upplevelser efter avslutad bröstcancerbehandling som påverkar dem i vardagen. Fyra huvudkategorier identifierades: Begränsningar, Oro för framtiden, Behov av stöd och Nytt livsperspektiv.

Konklusion: Kunskapen om kvinnors upplevelser och behov efter avslutad bröstcancerbehandling bör uppmärksammas i utformningen av individanpassad omvårdnad. Detta kan underlätta kvinnors vardag och öka välbefinnandet.  

Nyckelord: Bröstcancer, kvinnor, upplevelser, avslutad behandling, stöd. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. Early diagnosis and treatment increase the chance of surviving breast cancer. In the process of ending treatment and moving on in life, psychological and physical experiences can affect women's daily lives, and in this context they may experience a continuing need for support.  

Aim: To describe women’s experiences of living with breast cancer after completed treatment.

Methods: A literature study with qualitative approach where 12 studies were chosen that responded to the aim. A qualitative analysis was made of the material and then compiled into 4 categories and 10 subcategories.

Results: The result shows that women have different physical and psychological experiences after completed breast cancer treatment that affects them in everyday life. Four main categories were identified: Restrictions, concerns about the future, need for support and new life perspective.

Conclusion: The knowledge of women's experiences and needs after completed breast cancer treatment should be noted in the formation of personalized care. This can facilitate the everyday lives of women and increase their well-being.  

Keywords: Breast cancer, women, experiences, completed treatment, support.
