Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I Sverige var prostatacancer, 2016, den vanligaste cancerformen hos män och den vanligaste kurativa behandlingen är radikal prostatektomi. Bieffekter är vanliga efter operation och kan upplevas negativt av de behandlade männen. Vissa män uppger att de har negativa upplevelser av den omvårdnad och den information de fått under vårdtiden.

Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie är att belysa mäns erfarenheter efter radikal prostatektomi.

Metod: En litteraturstudie har genomförts. Databassökningar genomfördes i PubMed, CINAHL och PsyINFO. 12 kvalitativa artiklar har granskats, analyserats och sammanställts.

Resultat: Resultatet sammanställdes i fem kategorier: Vikten av att vara informerad, Männen i relation till andra, En strävan efter att behärska sin kropp, Att tillskrivas en ny identitet, En förändrad syn på livet.

Konklusion: Denna litteraturstudie har belyst mäns erfarenheter efter radikal prostatektomi och visar att männen har olika sätt att se på sina upplevelser. Denna variation ger en komplex bild och en utmaning för sjuksköterskor kring omvårdnaden för dessa män.
