Abstract [sv]

Andelen människor med övervikt eller fetma ökar. Detta har blivit ett samhällsproblem eftersom överviktiga drabbas av följdsjukdomar som negativt påverkar deras liv vilket leder till bland annat depressioner, mer sjukskrivningar och vårdbehandlingar. En behandling mot fetma är att operera magsäcken, en så kallad Gastric bypass. Syftet med denna studie var att belysa människors erfarenheter av vården före, under och efter en Gastric bypass operation. Metoden som användes var en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultatet har sammanställts i fem kategorier: Vändpunkt i livet, Bristande information, Behov av mer stöd, Livsstilsförändring krävs och Operationen en början på något nytt. Förslag på förändringar som uppdagats är: matlagningskurser, gruppmöten, inledningsvis obligatoriska samtalsstöd, information om olika träningsformer, personliga möten eller någon form av ökad uppföljning, vårdpersonal och patienter måste vara mer pålästa om vad en operation innebär och söka information själva. Dessa operationer har inneburit en nystart på livet, en förändrad livsstil med större kvalitet och livsglädje nu än innan, informanterna orkar och vill mer idag.
