Abstract [sv]

Titel: Kvinnors upplevelser efter att ha genomgått hysterektomi.

Bakgrund: Hysterektomi är ett kirurgiskt ingrepp där livmodern avlägsnas. I Sverige genomgår årligen cirka 10 000 kvinnor hysterektomi. Indikationer för hysterektomi kan vara onormala blödningar, postpartum blödning och myom.

Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att belysa kvinnors upplevelser efter att ha genomgått hysterektomi.

Metod: En litteraturstudie som grundas på åtta kvalitativa studier.

Resultat: Resultatet har presenterats i tre huvudkategorier samt sex underkategorier. Anpassning till ett ”nytt liv” – nya möjligheter och att hantera situationen. Förlusten av det reproduktiva organet – infertilitet och kvinnlighet samt sexualitet och relationer. Emotionella påfrestningar – reaktioner och återupplevelser samt bemötande i sjukvården.

Konklusion: Upplevelserna bland kvinnor som genomgått hysterektomi är individuella. Det är därför viktigt att sjuksköterskan aktivt lyssnar på kvinnans berättelse om sin situation. Det behövs mer kvalitativ forskning om hur kvinnor upplever bemötandet av sjukvårdspersonal i samband med hysterektomi för att sjuksköterskan ska kunna ge adekvat och personcentrerad omvårdnad.

Title: Women’s experiences after gone through hysterectomy.

Background: Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure where the uterus is removed. In Sweden approximately 10 000 women undergo hysterectomy annually. Indications for hysterectomy can for example be abnormal bleedings, postpartum haemorrhage and uterine fibroids.

Aim: The aim of this literature study was to illuminate experiences of women who had undergone hysterectomy.

Methods: A literature study based on eight qualitative studies.

Results: The results were presented in three main categories and six subcategories. Adaption to a ”new life” – new opportunities and to handle the situation. The loss of the reproductive organ – infertility and femininity and sexuality and relationships. Emotional strains – reactions and re-experiences and treatment in healthcare.

Conclusion: The experiences of women who have undergone hysterectomy are individual. Therefore, it is of importance that nurses actively listen to the woman's story about her situation. There is a need for more qualitative research regarding women’s experiences of the hospitality from the healthcare providers during hysterectomy so nurses can provide adequate and person-centered care.
