SILVA, Marcelo Henrique da et al. The daily life of men who lives with chronic venous ulcer: phenomenological study. Rev. Gaúcha Enferm. [online]. 2013, vol.34, n.3, pp.95-101. ISSN 1983-1447.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1983-14472013000300012.

The chronic venous leg ulcer is the major therapeutic problem of lower limb injuries, which can trigger changes in the daily life of the person affected by it. This study aimed to understand the daily life of men who lives with chronic venous ulcers. A phenomenological study was conducted with eight men, who were interviewed during June and July of 2012. The study asked questions related to: "Restrictions in social life" and "Recovering the skin integrity and restart the activities affected by the wound". The answers revealed that men with these ulcers have social implications in the areas of productivity and sexuality. This leads to restrictions in everyday life with loss in performance of socially established roles for men, leading to anxiety for his return at full performance of his social role. The findings suggest significant experiential aspects that may guide professionals in the planning and implementation of health actions aimed to treat these patients.
