Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1865.  S.R Liverpool My life stops every month for several days and has for approx. twenty years due to one small, very inconvenient and annoying fibroid. I take tablets on prescription that are meant to help, but don't and also take Maca capsules!
1864.  T.H Stamford
1863.  T.C London Fibroids can ruin a woman\'s quality of life, effectively resulting in major internal bleeding every month. This must be treated as the life diminishing and possibly ruining condition it is, with its often devastating effect on fertility, general health, intimacy and ability to lead a manageable quality of life. Prevention and wider education about this condition should be priorities. Most women under 25 do not know what fibroids are, though around 20% will have begun to develop them at that stage. Treatments come too late, are too invasive (as well as major surgery, the associated pre-surgery drugs which stop ovulation with little or no effect on the fibroid), poor availability of senior consultants to provide an individualised approach to a patient\'s needs - factsheets and newly qualified inexperienced junior doctors the only contact for a woman facing a major life decision re treatment. There is also no follow-up post operatively of the progress of the condition, which may be gradually returning again. As a fibroid sufferer I have experienced all of the above first-hand, including major surgery. Most women do not have the two months required to recover from this operation, or the home support for this to be an option.
1862.  E.G Milton Keynes
1861.  K.L Edinburgh
1860.  S Marseille FRANCE I m with you it's all
1859.  M.M.L.Y.P Lytham St Annes I think it is crucial to do more research about fibroids as I am one of those ladies that has badly suffered from them and sadly time is ticking until I have the big op... Not great really!
1858.  J.A Bearwood Birmingham Fibroids is real let campaign for women .
1857.  J.A Bearwood Birmingham Fibroids is real let campaign for women .
1856.  A.H Henfield I have had fibroids for well over 15 years and have received scant sympathy or interest from male doctors/consultants who either want to go for hysterectomy or for me to go away. At least two were rude and dismissive. Thanks to persistence I have recently seen a female consultant who recommended using another trust to consider UAE and my female GP has referred me to a trust which offers UAE - I have wanted this for years! I do think that the attitude of male medical practitioners needs to change
1855.  C.M London As a sufferer of Fibroids more seminars and awareness and education on fibroids should be offered so you know your choices
1854.  J.R Cheadle
1853.  K.M Coventry
1852.  J.K Douglas
1851.  P.C London Further research is essential. Fibroids make many women's' lives a misery and are one reason why they fail to reach their full potential work
1850.  N.B Basildon
1849.  S.C St Ives
1848.  L.O Aylesford
1847.  M.P Stoke-on-Trent As someone who is newly- diagnosed with fibroids, I find it amazing that it is such a common condition with such potential to do harm, but has so little research into causes and appropriate treatments. This needs to be changed and quickly!
1846.  S.B Rainham
