Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2172.  A.T.T Stevenage
2171.  M.C.B Bournemouth I feel very strongly about this. When my fibroids were diagnosed my consultant jokingly said "oh well, you'll be 3 pounds lighter after your Hysterectomy"! No other treatment was considered or discussed. At my insistence, a Myomectomy was performed. I suffered terrible post operative complications, including rupturing internal stitches & bleeding, internal inflammation (& I believe infection). Although I paid to see him privately, my consultant refused to acknowledge that I had any problems. I was in pain, & discomfort, & couldn't walk far or lift anything heavy for over 2 years. It was only through gentle swimming exercise that I eventually made a full recovery 3 years after my operation.
2170.  C.C WGC
2169.  C.W Weston-super-mare I think better research and funding should be made available for all women from age 30\\\'s to advise the risk of fertility with fibroids and reduce invasive treatment such as surgery. I am 42 and married last September. I am trying with little joy for a child (my first). At age 37 I underwent myomectony the only choice other than hysterectomy for a very large uterus fibroid to save my fertility I was advised I had a successful outcome despite three months of monthly injections to reduce it prior to surgery I was not with anyone at the time so my chances of getting pregnant were nil. I met my husband a couple of years ago and we were married September 2015 however despite attempts to get pregnant the normal way is not appearing to work for us there doesn\\\'t seem to be any attempts from numerous visits to my gp to refer us to a fertility clinic and I feel our chances are running out. I would love to have children and gutted not being able to have information available to me at an age when I may have been able to do more to help myself I suffer with stomach pains even now 5 years post surgery and although I am told am still producing progestogen our chances of having a baby are slim .
2168.  J.B Ilkley
2167.  M.N Norwich I am 50 now and been suffering with fibroids for 15 years. My life is becoming unbearable and only a few days ago I visited a private consultant about problems with my bladder. The consultant believed my problems are related to me having fibroids. Concerned about negative impact of current treatments on offer hence my continued suffering. One time I was just sent away and told to take pain killers. I am bloated, fatigued and in pain much of the time now. I don't know what to do for the best. Waiting for urgent referral to main hospital for about the fifth time.
2166.  L.H Brampton Beccles
2165.  H.O London Surely research is overdue. It is destroying lives. In general there should be more education for young girls, possibly as part of sex education where provided. Embarrassing that fibroid is still so ignored by the govt and medics because it does not kill you.
2164.  C.D Ammanford
2163.  R.P Cardiff As a sufferer for more years than I can rambert. Being treated by gino. Now worse than ever more needs to be done
2162.  A.P Caerphilly
2161.  M.N.W Lowestoft
2160.  T.M London There should be more funding for research.
2159.  S.B Cambridge Having suffered with fibroids with a long time, I would like to see more research into effective, less invasive procedures to alleviate the symptoms.
2158.  Y.D Hemel Hempstead
2157.  A.M Truro
2156.  C.N North Shields Fibroids should be taken much more seriously. They can cause terrible difficulties for sufferers in many ways. I see my own daughter suffer in the same way I have and I feel strongly that this should not be happening.
2155.  S.P Dumbarton
2154.  S.M London
2153.  S.J Northampton Being told that a hysterectomy is your only option at the age of 36 is heartbreaking.
