Living with breast cancer : Women’s experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Bröstcancer är den vanligaste cancertypen hos kvinnor. Bröstcancer har olika stadieindelning och olika namn beroende på vart den sitter i bröstet. Det finns olika typer av bröstcancerbehandlingar som kan påverka kvinnan både fysiskt och psykiskt. Sjuksköterskans roll är att bemöta dessa kvinnor och hjälpa dem under deras hälsoprocess.

Syfte: Att undersöka kvinnors upplevelser efter en bröstcancerdiagnos.

Metod: Metoden som användes var en integrerad sammanställning av kvalitativa studier. Data samlades in från elva kvalitativa artiklar.

Resultat: Resultatet består av tre huvudkategorier: Förändrad kropp och själ, Bemötande och Ett annorlunda liv med tillhörande sex underkategorier. Dessa beskriver hur kvinnans fysiska och psykiska hälsa drabbats av bröstcancer men även andra faktorer påverkade dem. Hur de finner acceptans inför sitt nya annorlunda liv.

Konklusion: Studien visar hur kvinnorna både uppskattade och är missnöjda över det nya livet. Varje kvinna hade en egen upplevelse som påverkats av egna tankar.
