Abstract [en]

In Sweden there is 300,000–400,000 people with impaired kidney function. with chronic renal failure, patients experience a limited life, with many symptoms affecting their ways negative and dialysis treatment is time consuming and adversely affects their everyday lives. Kidney transplantation is an effective treatment and is the most common organ transplant in Sweden. Patients hope to have an improved quality of life through a kidney transplant despite the risks of transplant rejection. In order for the nurse to be able to provide good nursing after a kidney transplant and to see what the patient has for nursing needs, the nurses then needs a deeper knowledge of patients' experiences of life after a renal transplant.

The aim was to describe how patients experience life after a kidney transplantation.

Literature overview based on 10 scientific articles from the database Cinahl Complete, Academic Search Complete and Nursing & Allied Health. The articles are reviewed and analyzed according to Friberg's (2012) method of identifying similarities and differences, then compiled.

Following the analyses, three main themes were identified: New life with changes, the experience of limited life, anxiety, concern and loneliness, which describes how life after kidney plantation is experienced by the patient

The method discussion is based on the strengths and weaknesses of the literature review. The result is discussed based on Calista Roy's adaptation theory from the key concepts and adaptive features.
