Men's perceptions of quality of life after radicalprostatectomy due to prostate cancer (English)
Abstract [en]

Background 

Radical prostatectomy is a common treatment for prostate cancer. However, it can lead to side effects affecting quality of life in men both physical and psychological.

Aim -

The purpose is to highlight men's perceptions of quality of life after radical prostatectomy due to prostate cancer.

Method -

A literature review done on nine scientific articles from various countries. The literature review used both qualitative and quantitative articles.

Results -

Sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence were the side effects that most men felt affected the quality of life negatively. The information was perceived inadequate. It was either poorly planned or did not occur.

Conclusion -

Men are in need of information both before and after surgery as radical prostatectomy will bring changes that affect men's quality of life. Medical professionals need to ask about intimate issues as patients do not always dare to raise these voluntarily

Syfte –

Metod –

En litteraturöversikt gjord på nio vetenskapliga artiklar från olika länder. I litteraturöversikten användes både kvalitativa och kvantitativa artiklar.

Resultat –

Sexuell dysfunktion och urininkontinens var de biverkningar som flest män upplevde påverkade livskvaliteten negativt. Informationen upplevdes bristfällig, den var antingen dåligt planerad eller uteblev.

Slutsats –

Män är i behov av information både före och efter operationen då radikal prostatektomi för med sig förändringar som påverkar männens livskvalitet. Sjukvårdspersonal måste fråga om intima frågor då patienter inte alltid vågar ta upp dessa självmant
