Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2057.  R.H Weston super mare
2056.  G.L Tynygongl I'm facing a hysterectomy on the NHS at the pre-menopausal age of 56 (yes, still not there, and I feel young), yet myomectomy is offered in other countries even for older women who do not want any more children. The uterus, left intact, has a structural role in the abdomen, and the ovaries have a hormonal function right into old age. Why is it 'normal' to whip the whole lot out because of fibroids? Not enough awareness, and possibly skill, even among the gynaecologists. Pay more attention to women's gynaecological health, and do more research please!

2051.  J.A CHESTER As a relatively new diagnosis of fibroids, I,m finding that the treatment is very varied. I had a scan and was told 1 large and 2smaller fibroids and my womb was bulky. Obviously I left thinking what does that mean no explanation. My appt was very quick from gynecology, so just have to wait and see. But I hate how my stomachlooks and how big it is, I can,t eat a proper meal at dinner time as I feel very full. I also have ongoing medical issues which are chronic. More research needs done.
2050.  J.T London More information for women on preventions or what happens if you have been diagnosed with it
2049.  E.W Alburgh,Harleston,Norfolk Having just had Uterine Artery Embolisation, I was appalled that most of the consultants I saw just automatically offered a full hysterectomy when in my case was not needed. The procedure for me was most successful,least invasive and great results . We need more funding to train,educate and offer patients their right to a choice. I had to fund my own treatment just to receive what I knew was right for me .
2048.  M.Y Harrow
2047.  J.K Frome I had endometriosis for over three decades. I found little was known about the condition and there were little treatment options. I also realised in recent years that the way I live my life, my daly living choices have a lot to do with my health, and since making a lot of changes the symptoms of endometriosis have now dissipated. I see so many If not all womens health conditions on the rise - and the question I have is how is it that in this modern world with all the technology, drugs, research etc we have that womens health is on the decline, more and more conditions and rising statistics? Having learnt that lifestyle played a strong factor in my condition, and as I made changes the condition improved - there is a greater question here - how are women living their lives? and how much does lifestyle play a role in the cause of womens health issues? why is it womens health conditions are on the rise? These are questions that research could start to ask - about endometriosis and womens health conditions.
2046.  R.J Newport The information that is available is conflicting, I.e fibroids can not Affect your fertility, on other sites they can affect your fertility. I don\'t know the type of fibroid because apparently that isn\'t important.
2045.  C.C Liss Fibroids can make a woman's life a misery, and the condition can be all too easily dismissed as a minor complaint.
2044.  R 22 shaftesbury. ave Should look for nhs funwinds,for fabroids
2043.  S.M Hillam
2042.  J.W Kettering Following 2 consultants recommendations that I have hysterectomy I am still seeking an alternative less drastic course of action.
