Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions

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

1712.  J Crawley I almost collapsed at work through anaemia due to my haemorragic fibroids. Even at 47 I had no idea what fibroids were or how common they were. I seldom suffer illnesses & couldn't understand why I couldn't function. I thought I might have a terminal illness & wondered how I would tell my son :0( Now I've been mis-prescribed by a stand-in doctor & I have at least another 6 months of my life which will be debilitatingly frustrating as, with the exception of the anaemia, I am now further from resolving the condition than I was before. Please help make doctors aware that "womens' problems" are not all "in their heads" &, with a little awareness, may be quite straightforward to diagnose & treat.
1711.  F Twickenham I believe there could be earlier options to ask questions / check for fibroids, even linked to smear test dates.
