Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1735.  J.D Stone STAFFORDSHIRE Consultants need to listen and stop patronising patients
1734.  J.S Redditch Fibroids make life extremely uncomfortable and painful for those with them - and put pressure on families of those who have the condition. Please help research...
1733.  S London
1732.  A.O.A London I am 38 and have suffered with fibroids which has resulted in fertility issues. I have had 2 miscarriage yet am still not considered as 'risk' in pregnancy. If there had been any tests during my early age to identify that I wasatrisk of fibroids I would have started my family early. That is what I would like to see for the younger generation who are at risk of developing fibroids.
1731.  K.S Grimsby
1730.  A.N Huntingdon
1729.  L.C Knaresborough
1728.  R.M Highbridge
1727.  R.J Arbroath
1726.  L.H Bradmore
1725.  M.W.F St Leonards on/sea Doctors are all to eager to suggest a full hysterectomy instead of looking into alternatives.
1724.  L.S.D Cambridge I complained of heavy periods to my previous GP. My previous GP told me that "heavy periods are normal at my age" without physically examined me. At the hospital CT examination showed a very large uterine fibroid and a small uterine fibroid. I do not want any GP to tell patients that "heavy periods are normal at your age" without carrying out any kind of physical examination. I do not want any other female patient to go through what I have been through. I consider a simple lower physical abdominal examination can help to detect uterine fibroids and not go unnoticed. I would also like awareness to be raised about uterine fibroids and patients being informed properly into less invasive, less aggressive , less dangerous management of fibroids rather than being advised on major, aggressive, surgical interventions such as Hysterectomy where I am reading there are actually DEATHS, bowel perforations, bladder perforations, heavy bleeding, constant urinary tract infections from major surgical interventions such "hysterectomy". I would like more research, more information, more education, specially educating GPs into what exactly is a uterine FIBROID and which kind of symptoms it can cause. Thanks
