Hematologisk cancer innefattar olika typer av cancer: leukemi, lymfom och myelom. Den behandling som ges vid hematologisk cancer innefattar stamcellstransplantation, strålning och cellgifter. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva patienters upplevelser av behandlingar vid hematologisk cancer. Metod: Datamaterialet analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Data insamlades genom sex bloggar. Resultat: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framträdde tre kategorier; den nya vardagen, en känslomässig berg- och dalbana samt ständigt rätta sig efter kroppens begränsningar med sju underkategorier. Konklusion: Denna studies resultat har bidragit med information som med fördel kan användas för att få en ökad förståelse av personer med hematologisk cancer.
