Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1973.  M.S Rugby
1972.  M.H Rossendale There really does need to more research into fybroids and their symptoms and in particular better training for GP's as I have been trying to get treatment for five years now having been dismissed as them not causing me pain. Or it being IBS or bad period pains or being made to feel a wimp. When they have ruined my life for the last few years. More belief of what patients tell Dr's rather than what the text books tell them is urgently needed.
1971.  L.N LONDON
1970.  L.B Sheerness
1969.  S.K Whitby Raising awareness and screening is crucial. Having been to the doc 3 times for unexplained weight gain, I am now nursing a very large fibroid mass and trying to carry on as normal. Being told it's just like pregnancy doesn't help the exhausting symptoms or concern about possible options. Everything I've read advocates a hysterectomy, with little or no info about the aftermath. I would like my daughters to be offered screening as they both suffer with heavy periods. Additionally my mum and nana both had polyps and ovarian cancer resulting in hysterectomy . I would be interested to know if I have always been prone to fibroids and if they caused my near fatal placental abruption with my eldest daughter....shouldn't my girls have the benefit of my hindsight in order to keep them safe and healthy. Lots to ask at my appointment next week !!
1968.  C.L Bletchley
1967.  S.H Cardiff I had a complicated csection due to fibroid and now waiting treatment before I conceive again. However with NHS waiting lists I\\\'m not sure I want to hang around.
1966.  I.C Slough
1965.  K.N Luton I am 40 years old and I am suffering from fibroid and my GP want that it should be operated. I have no idea about the various treatment. I will be delighted if more research is focus on this because every 1-3 women suffer from this illness.
1964.  C.W Leigh-on-sea Essex
1963.  K.G London
1962.  J.J Gosport
1961.  A.B Dover
1960.  M.L Spennymoor
1959.  Z.T Leeds
1958.  K.B.W Malvern
1957.  K.H St Helens More research is definitely needed. I have 1 large fibroid and a few smaller ones. I have been offered an abdominal hysterectomy which I am not keen on having. My symptoms are getting worse though so I feel that I don't really have a choice any more x
1956.  U.T Lincoln
1955.  A.L Glasgow I believe this is an important priority for research
1954.  M.G Bromley
