Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2137.  M.C Daventry Before my fibroid was finally diagnosed, I was told by my GP that I have irritable bowel and then when I went back with my pain and heavy bleeding, that I was going through the menopause. Eventually, a scan showed the fibroid, I suffer bad back pain, especially at night, I have queried if this could be pressure from fibroid. I have had 6 months of GNRH, which should shrink the fibroid, but my continues to grow! So now I have been advised that there is a slight risk that it could be malignant. I am having a hysterectomy, which I have had to push for. I am exhausted, scared and fed up of the pain. Fibroids have ruined the quality of my life for the past 5-years. Earlier diagnosis and treatment is essential, for such a common problem.
2136.  D.Q Brooklyn, NY
2135.  L.R Sarn
2134.  P.S Belfast
2133.  L.N Northfield More research into causes,detection and treatments for fibroids is needed. My symptoms have been making my life miserable for over 2 years. I have only just been referred to a gynaecologist.
2132.  S.A Ely It makes my blood boil that as a long term fibroid sufferer the only alternative treatment to a hysterectomy I was offered was the Mirena coil, which I 'lost' after three years of making my symptoms even worse, including huge blood clots and hair loss. A lot more research is required to determine the causes of fibroid and offer more non- invasive treatment options. I have come to the end of my tether now and am completely exhausted and now even considering a hysterectomy to bring an end 15 years of extremely painful and heavy periods.
2131.  P.H Denbigh
2130.  M.P Brighton If fybroids affected men we wouldn't need a petition
2129.  D.B London I have rcently been diagnosed as having fibroids and I am appalled at how little importance they seem to have in the medical world.
2128.  H.B Manchester
2127.  E.B Stratford Upon Avon After collapsing at home haemorrhaging, ambulance to A and E, HB 40, being told I was an hour away from death, 4 unit blood transfusion. u/s showed 10cm fibroid. My life turned upside down when told at 50 I needed a hysterectomy. Refused and found a wonderful eminent fibroid surgeon in London who did a myomectomy on me at age 51 4 weeks ago. Preserving my Uterus, Cervix and Ovaries. Late menopause runs in my family and I was utterly passionate about preserving my womb. Thank god for Nicki On who inspired me to fight for my womb. A million thank you\'s. I will keep in touch as my surgeon wants me to help with a video to promote myomectomy for all women of all ages. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
2126.  F.B Gillingham I am about to have a full hysterectomy, yet very little information has been provided to me. I had one GP appointment, one scan and one consultation with a registrar, by the end of which I had signed up for surgery. This is not informed consent!!!!!!
2125.  T.V Lancing I am too suffering, and have not had any help from GPS.
2124.  S.P Tamworth Women who have fibroid are in a helpless situation where they do not know what causes it and what they can do to prevent getting one. Hystrectomy or mymectomy or any surgery is not a solution.We need to know what causes it in the first pace so that it can be prevented or stopped from growing back. More research is surely required in this field.
2123.  C.H Dudley Fibroids are a source of misery for those who suffer from them thanks to the uncomfortable side-effects such as extended periods (mine has lasted 18 days so far this month and shows no sign of stopping) and pain in some cases.
2122.  M LONDON I think resarch should be done on the cause of fibroids
2121.  T.T Digby, Lincoln In this modern day and age there should be non surgical alternatives to this distressing and often debilitating problem. Too many women in the UK have had to undergo needless hysterectomies.
2120.  I.M Lusaka Any efforts directed at supporting this cause are in the right direction as more and more female lives are interrupted due to this illness. therefore im signing this petition to add to the masses of women who are asking for more research to be put in this effort
2119.  L.F Harrogate I\'ve had three years of hell living with ever increasing fibroids. I was told they would shrink with menopause but was never told that whilst waiting for menopause they may grow too big to operate on. I am now about to embark on esmya 3 months on 2 months off until menopause. I\'m only 47 so this could go on for some time.
2118.  C.I Belvedere
