Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2395.  T.U Nottingham
2394.  P Scotland It is time to invest more in fibroid research. A condition hardly talked about but affecting so many women world wide. Please educate healthcare professionals on how to speak to patients with this condition. Some consultants need to have more manners, have some compassion and should understand more than anyone that the uterus is not only for having children and that it can be preserved for the future of womenís health. Long term impact on health needs to be considered. More research into diet, lifestyle and environmental conditions exposure is needed as well.
2393.  J.F Hertford
2392.  J.F Hertford
2391.  G.F London This is a serious condition. It robs many women and their families of a good quality of life and it has serious implications on productivity. There is a lack of public awareness and inadequate support for this condition. This needs to change.
2390.  L.O Handsworth
2389.  N Ickenham I do not think it is right to consider fibroids as common and leave them without treatment. I am fed up of be heavy bleeding, pelvic pain and have to go for surgery led by constipation.
2388.  B.A Edinburgh
2387.  K.M Retford
2386.  C.L Merseyside
2385.  C.W Bristol
2384.  O.N London With more research into fibroids, we can be able to help others lower their risks and find out what the risk factors are . But also so that more women are more aware about the condition
2383.  I.H Stanmore I have suffered for over 10 years with various treatments, having seen various specialist. I work in medical research in a different clinical area and I was shocked how little there is on this when I tried looking. More is needed, there are treatments, which can make huge impact on life, yet such massive variations and so long to wait on NHS.
2382.  J.S Nottingham Today I was diagnosed with a 7cm fibroid. I feel as though I've had my diagnosis and left to get on with my life whilst taking medication to try and reduce my seriously heavy bleeding. I'm afraid to go out as I'm scared I'm going to bleed heavily in public which has happened, twice. I'm not mentally stable as there has been no support offered or any information given about my condition. I just feel let down like there's no hope and that I will wake up and it was all a nightmare.
2381.  L.S Southsea
2380.  E.O Stoke-on-Trent It has taken me 10 years to get my diagnosis, and in that time Iíve heard numerous medical professionals tell me itís part of being a woman, something every woman deals with which has been absolutely heart breaking and Iím still coming to terms with knowing I was right in knowing my body, knowing something wasnít right but wasnít listened to. It makes you question and doubt everything. Following a diagnosis all Iíve been offered is the contraceptive pill which isnít designed to treat fibroids and if I decide to have children, what do I do then? The condition effects all parts of my life and that of my husband. It doesnít just effect me, it effects those closest to me and my ability to work and how I choose to live my life. I will deliberately avoid doing things because of my condition and I can be house bound for days either due to pain or because of fear of being able to make it to a toilet on time. More needs to be done, more treatment options and more education so itís not on me to educate people on my condition when I still donít fully understand whatís going on myself. No woman should have to fight for years for a diagnosis.
