Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
226.  A.J Brighton Having had fibroids for at least the past 10 years at the age of 54 they are still growing. I am battling with the medical opinions and this afternoon have an appointment when I will be insisting on a referal to at least talk to a radioligist who performs embolization to then be able to evaluate for myself another option available, apart from hysterectomy which I have been resisting for the past year. Waiting for referals seems such a waste of time. I am now on my third gynaecolgist as they are so narrow minded.
225.  C.L London I am astounded that such the NHS is still offering such invasive surgery as the ONLY option to thousands of women. There are alternative treatments out there that should be readily available to every patient. Either some of the medical profession is ignorant to what is available or there simpy isn't enough funding to make alternative treatments available. However wouldn't it far more cost effective if the NHS only had a patient take up a bed for 2 days( with UAE) as a opposed to 2 weeks ( myomectomy)? It doesn't make sense.
224.  L.C Birkenhead
223.  H.C London
222.  P.B Waterlooville
221.  M.C London
220.  J.L London
219.  A.O Mitcham
218.  M.A.C Prestatyn
217.  S.M Treuddyn
216.  L.F Melton Mowbray
215.  M.E Four Oaks
214.  M.G Dubai I have just been diagnosed with 3 different types of Fibroids at the age of 40 after years of symptoms which have progressively worsened. I cant accept hysterectomy as the only complete solution when I am yet to have my first child. I dont want to compromise my fertility. More research needs to be made into other options to help sufferers make an educated choice. I live in Dubai where most doctors are British or follow British medical practice.
213.  G.H London More reseach also needs to be done on why so many black women have fibriods.
212.  S.O Cairneyhill My periods are a nightmare as i have 5 fibroids.Im getting womb ablation in 2 weeks, this being an alternative to a hysterectomy.Hope it works.
211.  N.P Wembley
210.  T.N Portsmouth Doctors need to be more sympathetic to how it affects womens quality of life, not one person has asked me this question, to which my reply would be i havent got one. more women need to keep going back to gp and complaining.
209.  H.A Emsworth Also need research into how effective current treatment is. From experience everyone is offered a Mirena regardless of whether this is the best option. Side effects are dismissed as trivial and women are supposed to put up with them as long as there is some decrease in bleeding
208.  B.M London
207.  P.B Wembley
