Sammanfattning

Abstract: Background and purpose: Obesity is a major global health problem today and the only evidence-based method leading to a long-lasting weight reduction is bariatric surgery. Physical activity improves health, decreases the incidence of several diseases and may influence weight loss outcome after bariatric surgery. Knowledge regarding how patients experience physical activity after bariatric surgery could provide us with better tools to enhance physically active. Methods: The aim of the present study was to describe how patients experience physical activity one year after bariatric surgery. An inductive qualitative content analysis was used to analyse semi-structured interviews with twenty-four patients one year after bariatric surgery. Results: The main findings emerged in four overarching themes: “Hindrances of physical activity”, “Physical activity with a less obese body implies achievement”, “Coming to an understanding of the benefits of physical activity” and “Need of support”. Conclusion: According to our findings patients experience both achievements and hinders with regard to physical activity one year after surgery. Patients had an increased understanding of the benefits of physical activities, but support appears necessary to obtain and maintain a suitable level.
