After rain comes sunshine? : People´s experiences from going through Gastric Bypass surgery (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Obesity has exploaded in the last decades and an ongoing increase is to be seen. The disease is rated as a huge epidemia of times and has developed to an economic social problem. Today more people die from obesity and it´s complications than from nutritional diseases and malnutrition. Gastric Bypass has proved to enable a new life including an improved health and quality of life but has also been critized for being a quick solution not resulting in a long term perspective weight loss.

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe people´s experiences from going through Gastric Bypass surgery.

Method: The method used was a literature study based on qualitative research. The articles were analysed according to Fribergs five step model and resulted in three main themes and nine sub-themes.

Results: The main themes were- The last way out, The battle against oneself and On a new adventure. In order to be able to support these people keeping their new life style and weight reduction the nurse must have insight in people´s experiences of having undergone a Gastric Bypass surgery.

Conclusion: The result showed that Gastric Bypass can be a last alternative for hope about a better future and a chance to an improved health and quality of life. Though the surgery has to be combined with individually created coping strategies and a genuine, strong will to make a change in order to become a successful action in a long term perspective.
