Tranformed but still the same. : Patients experiences of life effects after bariatric surgery. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Försämrade levnadsvanor i samhället har inneburit en ökning av fetma bland befolkningen. Sjuklig övervikt behandlas bland annat genom obesitaskirurgi. Syfte: Litteraturstudiens syfte var att belysa patienters upplevelse av hur livet påverkas efter genomgången obesitaskirurgi. Metod: En litteraturstudie genomfördes där nio kvalitativa studier granskades, analyserades och sammanställdes med hjälp utifrån en innehållsanalys. Resultat: I litteraturstudiens resultat presenteras att genomgången obesitaskirurgi innebar en omfattande kroppslig förändringsprocess för patienterna. Operationen medförde nya fysiska förutsättningar men även oväntade negativa effekter. Till följd av förändringen lärde sig patienterna att hantera viktminskningen och vidare beskrevs en återupptäckt av sig själv. Att vara en individ utanför normen innebar upplevelser av en förändrad stigmatisering och ett engagemang från omgivningen. Positiva och negativa upplevelser presenteras bland patienter av både manligt och kvinnligt kön. Konklusion: Litteraturstudiens resultat visade att genomgången obesitaskirurgi var en livsomvälvande upplevelse som innebar både fysiska och psykiska förändringar bland patienterna.

Abstract [en]

Background: Various elements in the society and bad habits have resulted in an increased number of people living with obesity. One method to treat obesity today is to undergo bariatric surgery. Aim: The aim of this literature study was to highlight patients’ experiences of life effects after bariatric surgery. Methods: A literature study was conducted and nine qualitative scientific articles were reviewed, analysed and compiled with a content analysis. Results: In the result of the literature study it was presented that bariatric surgery were an extensive process of bodily change. The operation induced new physical preconditions but also negative and unexpected side effects of the surgery. As a result of the process the patients had to handle the weight loss and further rediscover oneself. To be an individual outside the criterion meant an altered stigmatization and dedication of the surroundings. Positive and negative experiences were described among both male and female patients. Conclusion: To undergo bariatric surgery was a life changing experience, which involved both physical and psychological changes.
