Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
231.  G.S Gloucester
230.  K.(.J Ashton-under-Lyne I first had a ovarian cyst in 2005 op and still not pregnant and low and behold i now have Fibroids but i still trying before it's too late.
229.  G.G Sale Treatment options need to be made available to the patients throughout their treatment - we would not be looking at these websites if we felt we were being given all our options with their side effects discussed honestly throughout.
228.  J.C Stoke-on-trent
227.  L.W Leicester I have recently recovered from a myomectomy, after years off misery and ill health, which was misdiagnosed as "its your age" (hb of 6 by final diagnose of fibroids).I then had the misfortune of being referred to a consultant who only overs hysterectomies!!! Not accepting this i requested a second opinion and finally found a consultant who was willing to give me a myomectomy to retain by uterus!!! Am now recovering but feel more support and research is needed in this area - I fought for my treatment but how many women actually question the their treatment. Many times I did think how my treatment might have differed if I was paying for my treatment! Fibroids effect millions of women, resulting in time off work, depression and fatigue - most of these women carry on because they are working women, mothers, keeping the family home going and do not have time to moan -they just cope!!! I also ponder on how different it would all be - if men had uterine fibroids!! Sorry to be cynical but 3 years of fighting for my treatment on the nhs (as a very high taxpayer) has taken its toll. My advice would be to "step away from the table and get a second opinion".
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.
