Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
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
1693.  M.D.T Highbury London We need to more research into fertility sparing options for the treatment of fibroids so that the human rights of women are protected; i.e. the right to family life. Other countries are far more advanced in the treatment options available for fibroids such as the USA and the UK should strive to become a leading authority into the research of fibroids rather than look upon other countries to take the lead in this vital medical research needed by so many women both in the UK and around the world.
1692.  C.H Deeside I have suffered all my adult life with fibroids and had every treatment available - other than a hysterectomy. I am now 52, 25 years after my first fibroid was diagnosed and removed and menopausal but I still have several large fibroids that require treatment - no signs of the promised shrinkage due to age. I have suffered pain, aneamia and debilitation and the horror of always looking 5 months pregnant - which I have to say is not a good look for a woman of my age. I refuse to have major surgery as I cant be away from my job for that long. So I suffer in silence
1691.  S.C London
1690.  M.S Kingswood More research is needed and a system should be in place for early detection in non-symptomatic patients.
1689.  E.G Fetcham
1688.  S.B Long Buckby
1687.  B.B Lewes I've been told I have loads of fibroid s. Doctor just tells me to eat a healthy diet !!!
1686.  A.C Wimblington
