Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2221.  L.Q FALMOUTH As someone who has recently been diagnosed with (very large) uterine fibroids, I feel not enough is done to make women aware of this condition. We are aware of women's cancers, but the far more common issue of fibroids hardly gets a mention.
2220.  C.T ST. AUSTELL
2219.  H.S London Searching for help
2218.  E.C London
2217.  Z.C London I have endometriosis and fibroids...I suffered years on the pill w migraines which was prescribed to control endometriosis however I wonder if in fact it was the pill which I took prior to diagnosis that triggered all problems - I have stopped the pill forever - the fibroids are not pleasant. Heavy prolonged periods and constant bloating though certain foods I know I must avoid to ease inflammation.
2216.  T.L Bristol
2215.  M.N Middleton On Sea Please fund more research into this area. I have only just been diagnosed after years and years of suffering every month with worsening symptoms and infertility. It really affects my quality of life and hoping to get a solution soon.
2214.  A.H Blackburn Living with a sizeable fibroid, I have only been given one option which is to come off HRT, which improves my quality off life , or live with continual bleeding and discomfort.
2213.  A.S London It can be very distressing not to mention painful. Much more research is needed and more options for sufferers.
2212.  J.B PORTSMOUTH
2211.  O.A London Some of us wish to keep our wombs preferring TCRF, UFE, Myomectomy or even Diet and Supplements. BUT once a woman hits 50 seems the preferred NHS option is Hysterectomy. To remove a significant organ is physical, spiritual and emotional... plus it speeds up Menopause which isn\'t pleasant and could last for years.
2210.  K.M Manchester
2209.  M.H Poulton-le Fylde I wonder if it were a condition affecting men whether more research would have been done?
2208.  S.F Harrow, Middx More research and early detection is needed.
2207.  K.M Longfield
2206.  R.S Fleet
2205.  G.W London
2204.  S.M Birmingham
2203.  S Kooner
2202.  D.R.G Northwood My sister had 3 large fibroids and on the operating table the surgeon has to remove her left fallopian tube. Today she is 40 and does not have children and her chances of having them are slim now. I too have been diagnosed with 2 large fibroids and the NHS specialist has straight away asked me to undergo an open invasive surgery to remove the fibroids which will increase my chances of having a baby. After having stumbled on this forum, I have no decided to find some alternatives to surgery and would urge the NHS to increase research on removing fibroids without resorting to surgery.
