Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Stomi innebär att genom kirurgiskt ingrepp anlägga en öppning genom bukväggen för att avleda tarminnehåll. Många stomiopererade kan ha svårigheter att hantera den nya situationen. Syfte: Att beskriva upplevelser kring hur det är att leva med tarmstomi. Metod: Litteraturstudie med tio vetenskapliga artiklar av kvalitativ eller kvantitativ design. Resultat: Att leva med tarmstomi medförde en förändrad livssituation, som för många var svår att hantera. Den nya situationen orsakade fysiska och psykiska problem. Rädsla för lukt, läckage och gaser hade en negativ inverkan på vardagen och det sociala livet. Diskussion: Sjuksköterskan kan oavsett arbetsplats möta människor med tarmstomi. Då många stomiopererade upplever det svårt att hantera sin nya livssituation är det av stor vikt att belysa dessa människors upplevelser. För att kunna utföra god omvårdnad är det viktigt att sjuksköterskan är medveten om de problem som kan uppstå. För att minska upplevelsen av problem relaterade till stomin samt underlätta anpassningen till den nya livssituationen med tarmstomi bör mer information och stöd ges både pre- och postoperativt.
