Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2193.  T.H Brighton
2192.  H.F Chichester 'Women's Problems' are a joke, something that men laugh about but the reality for many women is far from funny. Very little is known about what causes fibroids yet the quality of many women's lives is severely impacted by them. I've lost a job because of them. More research needs to be done so that women don't suffer unnecessarily.
2191.  E.S Manchester
2190.  A.M Glasgow As a nurse - as a woman - you'd think I'd have known more. Information about the menopause & what is normal perimenopause is so sparse. So when I was tired, I thought perimenopause... When my menstrual flow changed I thought perimenopause. (So did the 1st GP who sent me away without any investigations). It wasn't till I was persuaded to see another GP 2 yrs later that I knew I had a fibroid: at this time my haemoglobin had fallen to dangerously low levels. I am a mother of 5 children... 4 of whom are girls. This situation is not acceptable. Education NEEDS to be better. Research is required as prevention is better (& usually cheaper) than treatment in the long run.
2189.  R.C Stoke-on-Trent 80% of women will suffer from fibroids by the age of 50. That's almost half of the population. Action needs to be taken to develop methods that are less intrusive, with quicker recovery time, and which preserve fertility.
2188.  L.B Newbury I have suffered for several years (a few in silence) and my late twenties were spent in pain, confusion and general difficulty. i don't want this for other women but Parliament has to recognise the dangers in not knowing enough about the 'mysterious' fibroids .
2187.  J.B Greenford Middlesex
2186.  P PALM HARBOIR I have been suffering with fibroid for 16 years, if i had insurance i would everything taken out asap.
2185.  J.M Leeds
2184.  K.Y Whitefield
2183.  M.S.K London I have suffered from fibroids for over 20 years. Mine are rather aggressive and although I have had 2 Myomectomies, the fibriods have returned. I am waiting for an op but my follow up care has been horrendous.
2182.  R.S Batley I am attempting to live with my fibroids as I am terrified of surgery. Like another petitioner, I am hoping the longer I wait, more understanding of fibroids will emerge, along with not offering surgery as the only option. I am also keeping my fingers crossed that as I hit the menopause, they may shrink naturally!!!
2181.  S.B Hereford
2180.  W.H Ilford
2179.  D.F Co . Fermanagh
2178.  A.C Taunton I find it hard to believe that this treatment require a petition. Surely common sense is enough to know that if it is possible to treat fibroids with no knife- no further complications which can lead to further operations,that it should be cheaper in the long run to fund this! and alot nicer for those involved.
2177.  F.A London
2176.  D.P Basildon I suffered severely with fibroids for 14 years, had 4 miscarriages, 4 myomectomies, and ended up with a hysterectomy and no children. In and out of hospital for all those years, seeing over 10 dismissive doctors, it stole my life. Something needs to be done to stop this happening to more women.
2175.  I.P Huddersfield I have fibroids for a few years, I felt ridiculed and ignored by many health professionals due to "making fuss" about the condition. In my view, the condition is awkful, I feel like a pregnant woman most of the time, I need to urinate very often and I feel a lot of pain. However, this seems to be insufficient for the NHS to treat this condition as severe.
2174.  L.A London I just found out i have fibroses. I am 35, i want children, i am scared...where should i go?
