Patients' experiences after a laparoscopic Bypass (English)
Abstract [en]

Background:

Obesity (BMI 30 kg/m2) is a big global health problem today and can lead to several diseases, and high risks of mortality. The most common performed obesity treatment is a laparoscopic Gastric Bypass. There are recommendations that should be followed to reduce the risk of complication and side effects after surgery.

Aim:

The aim was to describe patient’s experiences after a laparoscopic Gastric Bypass.

Method:

A qualitative method with a content analysis was used, six interviews with open questions has been analysed. Participants in the study were four women and two men (age 35-56 years old) who had undergone a laparoscopic gastric bypass.

Results:

At the text analysis the following four categories were revealed: "A whole new life situation", "Knowledge", "Compliance" and "Support needed". These categories describe patient’s experiences after a Laparoscopic Gastric bypass and are shown in eight subcategories: "Health and self-image", "Complications and side effects", " Searching for information", "Healthcare professionals knowledge"," Motivation for change", "Responsibility for new functioning routines", "Treatment and relationship" and "Follow-up".

Conclusion:

Even after gastric bypass surgery, losing weight requires motivation and changes in a person's behaviour. Patients who seek information have better effect of surgery, and also fewer problems with known side effects. There is need for more research in this area in order to develop more knowledge about Gastric Bypass Surgery and care of these patients.
