Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1713.  G.K London
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.
1710.  A.E Great Coates
1709.  M.E Great Coates
1708.  L.H.W Great Sutton Cheshire
1707.  L.K Reading
1706.  K.W Wakefield A sufferer
1705.  V.G RIPON I WAS TOLD I HAD A FIBROID 4 YEARS AGO, THERE WAS NO TREATMENT OF FOLLOW UP FOR THIS, NOW IT IS 3.5CMS AND I HAVE A HANDFUL OF SMALLER ONES AND I HAVE JUST HIT THE MENOPAUSE BUT THEY ARE CAUSING ME PROBLEMS WITH EXERCISING, WAITING FOR ANOTHER APPOINTMENT WITH THE GYNAE, WHO MISTAKENLY SENT ME FOR A HYSTEROSCOPY WHEN I TOLD HIM MY PERIODS HAD NOW STOPPED, IN THE MEANTIME THEY ARE REFERRING ME TO PHYSIO WHICH I DON'T REALLY NEED AS I DONT HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY BLADDER ONLY THAT IT FEELS HEAVY AND UNCOMFORTABLE WHEN I AM RUNNING.
1704.  W.L Kirkcaldy
1703.  G.M Erith
1702.  V.C Brown Edge Only recently diagnosed with large fibroids. They make my life miserable and the only option seems to be major surgery. It would be wonderful to know what caused them and if I could have done something to avoid getting them in the first place. More research is needed!
1701.  S.S Bournemouth More research is needed especially as not all doctors even gynaecologists seem to understand the condition. With our system where you often see a different doctor each appointment you get many different opinions which contradict and leave the patient very confused.
1700.  S.J Nottingham
1699.  J.M Bolton The trust is doing a very good job, helping woman going throught this is very important. Hope they will be given the chance to continue to do the good thing they are doing for everyone expecially women. Thanks very much.
1698.  J London Living in London meant that once I reported my symptoms to my GP I was sent for immediate medical diagnosis and treatment to help with the terrible symptoms of fibroids, but more research should to be done to improve awareness, diagnosis, treatment, GP follow up care on progress (very poor), and where to go for help and support.
1697.  M.P Worthing
1696.  S.K London I would like to know how to treat a fibroid without it effecting fertlity and for more treatment options to be available on the NHS prior to having severe symptoms
1695.  M.G Leytonstone
1694.  J.B York Had a effect on my life for too long sure thousands of other women are in the same postion .Its not right and certainly not fair on us and our family,s
