Abstract [sv]

Dagens samhälle kräver att varje enskild individ måste ta beslut över alla de val som vi ställs inför. När det gäller val som antingen gynnar eller missgynnar vår hälsa är möjligheterna idag oändliga. På grund av detta finns det många som ökar i vikt och därmed kan behöva hjälp med att göra en livsstilsförändring. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vilka faktorer som kan ha påverkat och motiverat i valet av att göra en gastric bypass operation, samt att urskilja vilka förändringar som följer efter den typen av livsstilsförändring. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes där fyra informanter deltog och studiens data analyserades med en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultatet skrevs fram med tre huvudkategorier: Livet innan operationen, Faktorer som påverkat och motiverat till att välja gastric bypass samt Livet efter operationen. Detta visade att informanterna motiverades av deras oro inför den framtida hälsan samt deras förhoppningar om en förändrad framtid, det visade också att deras val påverkades av omgivningen. Sinnesstämningen och den sociala tillhörigheten hade förbättrats efter operationen och livskvaliteten hade ökat.

Abstract [en]

Today's society requires that each individual has to take decisions on all the choices that we face. When it comes to choices that either benefit or disadvantage our health the possibilities are endless. As a result of this there is a large part of the population that has increased in weight and might need help in making lifestyle changes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors that may have influenced and motivated the choice of going through a gastric bypass surgery, and to discern which changes following that kind of lifestyle change. Semi-structured interviews with the four participants were conducted, data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. The result was partitioned into three main categories: Life before surgery, Factors that influenced and motivated to choose gastric bypass and Life after surgery. The findings displayed that the participants were motivated by their concern for the future health and their hopes for a changed future, the findings also showed that their choice was influenced by the surroundings. The surgery led to an improvement in mood and social life as well as an increase in quality of life for the participants.
