Abstract [en]

Nausea and vomiting are common and well-studied symptoms in cancer care. Most previous studies have focused on the frequency and management of these symptoms. The aim of the study was to acquire a deeper understanding of cancer patients' symptom experiences with a focus on nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy treatment, and the consequences these have on their daily lives. Nine women with different types of cancer and chemotherapy treatments were admitted for chemotherapy treatment and participated in the study. Semi-structured interviews were conducted and analysed using content analysis inspired by Kvale's methods of clarifying and developing new meaning. Five main categories were identified as ''before cancer diagnosis'', ''being ill-consequences on daily life'', ''going through chemotherapy treatment'', ''coping with treatment'' and ''after treatment-looking forward to a normal life''. The present findings suggest that the individual experiences of nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy treatment may have a profound effect on how treatment is perceived and may influence future decisions concerning further treatment.
