Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2167.  M.N Norwich I am 50 now and been suffering with fibroids for 15 years. My life is becoming unbearable and only a few days ago I visited a private consultant about problems with my bladder. The consultant believed my problems are related to me having fibroids. Concerned about negative impact of current treatments on offer hence my continued suffering. One time I was just sent away and told to take pain killers. I am bloated, fatigued and in pain much of the time now. I don't know what to do for the best. Waiting for urgent referral to main hospital for about the fifth time.
2166.  L.H Brampton Beccles
2165.  H.O London Surely research is overdue. It is destroying lives. In general there should be more education for young girls, possibly as part of sex education where provided. Embarrassing that fibroid is still so ignored by the govt and medics because it does not kill you.
2164.  C.D Ammanford
2163.  R.P Cardiff As a sufferer for more years than I can rambert. Being treated by gino. Now worse than ever more needs to be done
2162.  A.P Caerphilly
2161.  M.N.W Lowestoft
2160.  T.M London There should be more funding for research.
2159.  S.B Cambridge Having suffered with fibroids with a long time, I would like to see more research into effective, less invasive procedures to alleviate the symptoms.
2158.  Y.D Hemel Hempstead
2157.  A.M Truro
2156.  C.N North Shields Fibroids should be taken much more seriously. They can cause terrible difficulties for sufferers in many ways. I see my own daughter suffer in the same way I have and I feel strongly that this should not be happening.
2155.  S.P Dumbarton
2154.  S.M London
2153.  S.J Northampton Being told that a hysterectomy is your only option at the age of 36 is heartbreaking.
2152.  C BRISTOL
2151.  B.W POYNTON Fibroid is stopping many women from conceiving and so the government ought to put fibroids in the top of agenda for research funding for better scheme for early detection and non invasive treatments
2150.  J London
2149.  C Bristol Yes not enough consideration or serious thought is given to Women suffering with Fibroids and all gynaecological problems. My quality of life has been ruined due to fibroids and also late diagnoses of primary ovarian insufficiency. I was finally diagnosed with both conditions after 10 years of going to numerous doctors and gynaecologists. However I was still not given any treatment, help or support and just sent away to get on with it. I suffered with a fibroid causing me much pain and discomfort for 4 years before having it removed. Unfortunately I have now been left with adhesions so now waiting to have these operated on, whilst still waiting and wondering if I will ever have my quality of life back and any chance of ever having a child of our own.
2148.  A.H Petersfield Chronic condition that once causes symptoms leads to poor quality of life. Hysterctomy was my ultimate final option and given the rest of the options which seemed only temporary I decided to go ahead with sub total hyst for my condition . This has lead to a very long recovery time and will be min of 8 weeks off work which is career changing !! I am furious after all this time that treatments available are so negative with poor long term success rates. Fibroids run in my family with my mother having hysterectomy , now me and my sister now having to. Same treatment offered to my mum nearly 40 years ago!! We have daughters and they are scared of the same fate. Research into new less evasive successful treatments and priority to prevention would be very much welcomed. Though not usually life threatening, complications are numerous for many and quality if life is very much impacted. Spending your time exhausted through blood loss , in pain and planning your life around a toilet is no fun for anyone with this benign condition. It affects every aspect of your life!!
