Experiences of living with lung cancer : A literature study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Lungcancer är en sjukdom som har en dålig prognos och där ett stort antal människor insjuknar årligen. Det är en sjukdom som leder till många och svåra symtom vilket skapar stort lidande. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva patienters upplevelser av att leva med lungcancer i det dagliga livet. Metod: En litteraturbaserad studie genomfördes med en kvalitativ ansats. Tolv vetenskapliga artiklar granskades och analyserades enligt en modell för en litteraturbaserad studie. Resultat: Ur resultatet identifierades sex kategorier: leva med osäkerhet, stigma och skuld, upplevelser av sjukdomsrelaterade symtom, en förändrad självkänsla, att få stöd och bli bekräftad samt pendla mellan hopp och förtvivlan. Diskussion: Det fanns ett behov hos patienterna av att leva så självständig som möjligt, där det sociala stödet och stödet från vårdpersonal var avgörande för att de skulle klara av det. Stöd överhuvudtaget var viktigt för att patienterna skulle kunna hantera de flesta situationer. Genom att sjuksköterskan får kunskap om patienters upplevelser av lungcancer kan patienters lidande lindras med hjälp av stöd från sjuksköterskan.
