In the shadow of the cancer : Women’s experiences of living with cervical cancer or ovarial cancer throughout blogs (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I Sverige drabbas 560 kvinnor av livmoderhalscancer och 700 kvinnor av äggstockscancer varje år. Detta påverkar kvinnornas livsvärld samt relationerna till sina närstående men även den intima relationen till partnern. Cancern har en negativ påverkan på kvinnornas välbefinnande och därför är det viktigt att de får ett bra stöd från vårdpersonal.

Syfte: Syftet med uppsatsen var att beskriva kvinnors upplevelser av att leva med livmoderhalscancer eller äggstockscancer.

Metod: En kvalitativ metod användes för att beskriva kvinnors upplevelser av att leva med livmoderhalscancer eller äggstockscancer. Datainsamlingen bestod av åtta utvalda bloggar, där en analys av narrativer användes.

Resultat: I resultatet framkom fyra olika teman: Blandade känslor kring sjukdomen, förändrad existens, cancerns påverkan på kvinnornas relationer samt att hantera det nya livet. Utifrån dessa teman skapades underteman som beskrev mer djupgående kring kvinnornas upplevelser av cancern.

Slutsats: Kvinnorna upplever att deras livsvärld påverkas i samband med cancern och att ovisshet och rädsla är ständigt närvarande. Ett behov av information och uppföljning från vårdpersonal anses viktigt för att öka kvinnornas välbefinnande.
