Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1741.  A Haslemere I'm suffering with fybroids for about 4 years nothing helped I would like to know more about it
1740.  S.S Bedford bed's Its time for GPs and Consultants to treat woman as humans, and give them choices, and not to right them off because of their age saying your older no chance of getting pregnant, and they just want to strerilze woman, it\\\\\\\'s not fair its unkind,being a woman with fibroids is painful and it x destroys ur self confidence.
1739.  V.S Northampton It disrupts family life,as my poor daughter can hardly stand up some days
1738.  A.A Leeds There needs to be far more research in this area. Being told there is little known about the cause of fibroids is frightening to say the least, especially in such a common condition.
1737.  L.P Ellesmere port Im a 30 yr old woman who has multiple fibriods the size of footballs. i have been suffering from heavy periods for about 5 years, ive been back and forth to the hospital to try and get a diagnosis nothing was found until recently when i started ivf treatment. they found the fibriods had been growing for 5 years at least. i believe that the hospital either through lack of knowledge or incompitency is at fault. more funding should be given for this to stop people from going through the heartache of being told that you cant have children because of fibriods!!!!
1736.  A.A London Please help, we need more alternatives to surgery for treating fibroids. We also need help at work as employers do not understand the pain we go through resulting in a lot of women with this disorder jobless.
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
1723.  D.N.A Sheffield
1722.  S.Y South Shirlds
