Stoma and Sexuality : A Literature Study of Ostomized Patients’ Experiences of Their Sexuality (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Mellan 20000 och 25000 personer beräknas leva med stomi i Sverige. Dessa patienter har olika bakgrundsproblematik där tarm-och urinblåsecancer samt inflammatoriska tarm-sjukdomar är vanligast förekommande. En stomi leder till förlorad kontroll över eliminationen, förändrad kroppsuppfattning och generellt även till fysisk sexuell dysfunktion. Sexualitet är en central del i människans liv och människan har behov av att uttrycka sig sexuellt genom hela livet oberoende av sjukdom. Dock har det visat sig att sjuksköterskan pratar om sexualitet i allt för liten utsträckning. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva stomipatienters upplevelse av sin sexualitet i relation till en förändrad kropp. Metod: En integrativ litteraturstudie genomfördes på tio artiklar med kvalitativ ansats. Resultat: Ur de studerade artiklarna framkom fyra övergripande kategorier kring patienternas upplevelse av sin sexualitet i relation till den förändrade kroppen: (1) förändrad identitet, (2) rädsla och oro, (3) att känna sig begränsad samt (4) försoning. Slutsats: Denna studie visar att de förändringar som en stomi innebär generellt påverkar sexualiteten negativt hos patientgruppen. Klinisk betydelse: Sjuksköterskan bör ge stöd, information och tillsammans med patienten och eventuell partner utveckla strategier att hantera de problem som individen upplever.

Abstract [en]

Background: An estimated number of 20,000 to 25,000 persons in Sweden live with a stoma. These patients have different medical histories that lead to the stoma, where intestinal and urinary bladder cancers together with inflammatory bowel diseases are the most common. A stoma leads to the loss of control over the elimination, an altered body image, and generally physical sexual dysfunctions. Sexuality is a central part of human life and people have a need to express their sexuality throughout their lives, regardless of diseases. However, studies have found that nurses talk too little about sexuality. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe stoma patients’ experiences of their sexuality in relation to an altered body. Method: An integrative review methodology was conducted on ten papers. Findings: Four broad categories emerged from the data: (1) altered identity, (2) fear and anxiety, (3) sense of limitation, and (4) reconciliation. Conclusion: This study shows that a stoma generally influences the sexuality negatively in the patient group. Clinical implications: The nurse should be supportive, give information, and together with the patient and, if present, his or her partner develop strategies to deal with the problems that the individual experience.
