“I WILL LEAVE MY FAMILY AND MY BODY AND THEN MOVE INTO ETERNITY, WHATEVER THAT IS?” : Womens experiences of what creates increased suffering and well being in the late palliative phase among women with recurrence of breast cancer - A litrature rewiev based on blogs (English)
Abstract [sv]

BAKGRUND: Bröstcancer är en av de vanligaste dödsorsakerna hos medelålders kvinnor i Sverige och varje år drabbas närmare 8500 kvinnor. Antalet kvinnor som avlider är ca 1400 per år. Recidiv av cancer kan bero på att alla cancerceller inte lyckats elimineras vid första behandlingen och istället återkommer i förökat antal. Tidigare forskning visar att lidandet hos cancerpatienter i det sena palliativa skedet omfattar psykiskt, socialt, existentiellt/andligt och fysiskt lidande. Den visar också att välbefinnande uppnås när kropp och själ fylls med meningsfulla upplevelser. Här har det sociala och professionella stödet en betydelsefull uppgift att fylla. SYFTE: Syftet är att identifiera faktorer som ökar upplevelsen av lidande respektive välbefinnande i det sena palliativa skedet hos kvinnor med recidiv av bröstcancer. METOD: Metoden som används är narrativ med berättelser i form av bloggar RESULTAT: Presenteras i två domäner med tillhörande kategorier. Domänen ökat lidande resulterade i två kategorier; Känslan av maktlöshet av att vara i sjukdomens grepp och tankar på att livet går mot sitt slut. Domänen ökat välbefinnande resulterade i en kategori; Att få stöd- en källa till trygghet, återhämtning, fortsatt livslust och kämparglöd. SLUTSATS: Kvinnor med recidiv av bröstcancer som befinner sig i det sena palliativa skedet upplever ökat lidande när känslan av maktlöshet och tankar på att döden står för dörren infinner sig. Genom stöd från nära och kära samt professionell hälso-och sjukvårdspersonal, upplever kvinnorna bland annat ökad trygghet, fortsatt livslust och kämparglöd, vilket skapar en upplevelse av ökat välbefinnande.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer is the most common cause of death among middle age women in Sweden. Approximately 8500 women are affected annually and about 1400 women dies every year. Recurrence of cancer can be that all cancer cells failed to be eliminated on the first treatment and instead return in multiplied numbers. Previous research shows that the suffering of cancer patients in the late palliative phase includes the mental, social, existential/spiritual and physical suffering. Previous research also shows that well-being was reached when body and soul was filled with meaningful experiences. It turned out that social and professional support play an important role. PURPOSE The aim is to identify factors that increase the experience of suffering and well-being in the late palliative phase among women with recurrence of breast cancer. METHOD: Narrative method as blogstories. RESULT: Presented in two domains with associated categories. The domain increased suffering resulted in two categories; The feeling of powerlessness of being in the grip of sickness and thoughts that life is about to end. The domain increased well-being resulted in one category, which was named; Getting support- a source of security, recovery, continued lust for life and fighting spirit. CONCLUSION: Women with recurrence of breast cancer who are in the late palliative phase experience increased suffering when the feeling of powerlessness and thoughts of that death is near appears. An experience of increased well being appears when the women gets support from loved ones and from professional health and care workers. Through that support, the women experienced a feeling of security, recovery, continued lust for life and fighting spirit.
