An analysis according to Friberg’sinstructions was performed, based on eight qualitative articles. Results: Four themeswere identified based on different aspects of how patients experienced their lives witha urinary catheter: Possibilities and limitations in everyday life, Not having sufficientknowledge, Fear and discomfort as well as Self-image and relationships with others.Something that became clear was the importance of the patients’ experiencesregarding the introduction of the catheter and how that effected the rest of thepatients’ lives with it. Implication: For nurses, it is important to remember that thepatients must live with the catheter for the rest of their lives. For further research, itmay be interesting to research how patients deal with the problems that arise and hownurses can inform, support and prepare the patients for a life with the catheter.
