Lived Experience after Bariatric Surgery (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Behandling av svår fetma med Bariatrisk kirurgi har ökat kraftigt. Målet med kirurgin är att minska sjuklighet och dödlighet genom viktminskning. Kirurgin påverkar även människors fysiska, psykiska och sociala liv. Syfte: Syftet med litteraturstudien var att beskriva hur patienter upplever sin livssituation efter Bariatrisk kirurgi. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en allmän litteraturstudie och baserades på 11 vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultat: Resultaten presenterades i fem huvudkategorier som speglar människors upplevelse av sin livssituation efter genomgång av Bariatrisk kirurgi; Förändrad kroppsuppfattning, känsla av ändrade relationer, positiva och negativa känslor relaterade till operationen, känslor relaterade till förändrat ätbeteende, och hälsorelaterade upplevelser. Slutsats: Förutom viktminskningen, kan Bariatrisk kirurgi även ha både positiv och negativ påverkan på människors fysiska och psykosociala liv. Det är därför viktigt att vårdpersonalen har kunskap kring hur de som opererats upplever sin livssituation, så att de kan vägleda och stödja dem.

However, the physical, mental and social life of the patients is affected following the surgery. Purpose: The aim of this study is to describe what patients experience in their life situation after undergoing Bariatric Surgery. Method: The study was conducted as a literature study and was based on 11 scientific articles. Results: The results are presented in five main catego-ries reflecting what people experience in their life situation after undergoing Bariatric Sur-gery: altered body image, sense of changing relationships, positive and negative feelings re-lated to the surgery, feelings related to their altered feeding behavior, and health-related expe-riences. Conclusion: Apart from weight loss, Bariatric surgery can also have both positive and negative impacts on the physical and psychosocial lives of patients.
