Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1832.  K.M Newacstle upon tyne
1831.  H.J Bournemouth
1830.  C Hertford Last year I missed a period for 4 months, after all the usual pregnancy tests came back negative, was told its my age and to deal with it (was 42 at the time and no kids as yet) I argued back with my doctor that was wrong to say that. Finally had a scan and have 2 fibroids 2cm each in size. Have not had a regular period since, always late and is heavy and full of clots and painful but nothing will be done as doctors just don\\\'t care or understand. More needs to be done!
1829.  C.C Rayleigh
1828.  A.W Bristol
1827.  M.H London
1826.  J.K Edinburgh I have just had a scan which showed 5 fibroids some small some large. Phoned GP no further action needed! I have 4 sisters with histerectomies because they left them in there until they grew to the size of a coconut. Made an app with my GP to discuss, luckily the lady who gave me the scan told me what I had!!
1825.  S.L BELPER
1824.  A.G London Sufferer of this condition, the only option doctors want to give you once you do not want children is a hysterectomy. this isn't good enough.
1823.  P.W Weston Super Mare
1822.  N.H London
1821.  F.C Gravesend I believe a lot more research should be done. People die from this disease in Africa.
1820.  C.G Horley
1819.  J.B Wootton Bassett I have been suffering with excruciating period pain and very heavy bleeding for 2.5 years and have recently been diagnosed with 2 fibroids. One inside and one outside my uterus. I'm shocked at how they are played down by both the Drs I have seen and the UK health websites. I was fitted with a mirena coil today and am really hoping to get a less painful life back as a result. More research and more accurate public information about the suffering we experience please!
1818.  F.M Bishops Itchington
1817.  A.M Aberdeen There should be more research and help given to women suffering from fibroid. After episodes of being anaemic and being off work, no one actually diagnosed the fibroids in the Uk. If I had not gone abroad and have the same anaemic attack and seeing an interventionist who diagnosed the fibroids I will still be suffering. Back to the UK an option of watchful waiting was given and at this point the anaemia was accompanied by bladder issues and pelvic pain but no one took any of it seriously. I finally had to go private to be listened to and now I have had a myomectomy done..just recovering from it just now
1816.  K.P Drumnadrochit
1815.  J.V Canterbury
1814.  J.J Lagos I support
1813.  K.B Werrington
