Illness blogs about ostomy (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I Sverige lever ca 20 000 personer med stomi. En stomi medför en kroppslig förändring som individen måste förhålla sig till. Både kroppen och dess funktioner som tidigare tagits för givna medvetandegörs. Det finns en oro för vad andra ska tycka och att stomin ska hindra i det dagliga livet. Empowerment sågs som en röd tråd i bloggarna och växte fram som referensram under arbetets gång. Syfte: Att belysa vad som skrevs om stomi i sjukdomsbloggar där stomiopererade skriver om sin vardag. Metod: Studien var en empirisk studie av sjukdomsbloggar. Fem sjukdomsbloggar om stomi valdes ut för manifest innehållsanalys med induktiv ansats. Resultat: I resultatet framgick vad personerna som skrev bloggarna upplevde som viktigt för att kunna hantera livet med stomi. I resultatet framkom de tre kategorierna stöd, självkännedom och egenvård. Slutsats: Empowerment kan hjälpa de stomiopererade att få tillbaka kontrollen över sitt liv efter stomioperationen. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Around 20 000 people are currently living with ostomy in Sweden today. An ostomy involves a physical change that the individual has to relate to. It raises awareness of the body and its functions which were previously taken for granted. There is a concern for what others will think and also a concern that the ostomy will prevent them from living a normal life. Empowerment could be seen as a common theme in the blogs that were studied and emerged as the framework during the working process. Aim: To study what was written about ostomy in illness blogs where ostomates writes about their daily life. Method: The study was an empirical study of illness blogs. Five illness blogs about ostomy was selected for a manifest content analysis with an inductive approach. Results: The results showed what the people who wrote the blogs perceived as important in order to be able to handle a life with ostomy. The results of the study revealed the three main categories - support, self-knowledge and self-care. Conclusion: Empowerment can help the ostomates to regain control of their life after the ostomy surgery.
