Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1602.  L.F Norwich Fibroids can really affect women's lives to the point that they have to take time of work. They can also cause anaemia which then causes them to be susceptible to infection which also means time of work. Fibroids need to be researched and new treatments developed to stop women form having to deal with this problem.
1601.  C Barnstaple I've been diagnosed with multiple fibroids and an enlarged uterus. I'm 47 and have no children. The treatment suggested - hysterectomy. Shocking that this was only treatment suggested. He eventually prescribed Esmya for 3 months, but didn't say whether this would have long-term beneficial effect, only that it was a pre-surgery treatment. Really unsatisfactory and unhelpful. Second opinion required and more research into this condition.
1600.  R.K Eastbourne I have recently been diagnoised with a large fibroid - 10cm in diameter. As a result I am very anaemic, but iron tablets (600mg per day) are not restoring my iron levels sufficiently, and I am due to see a consultant to find out what my options are. The size of the fibroid is causing me other problems too. It presses on my bladder and is also causing back pain. Further research is needed. I have been active and healthy all my life, but the impact of this fibroid on my quality of life has been immense. Further research and support for women with fibroids is necessary and long overdue.

1594.  A.J Sheffield I am under the gynaecologist with fibroids. I am told the largest is the size of a 5 month pregnancy. With the symptoms I can believe it. They have discussed an hysterectomy, but I would like to know about other less extreme options. I do feel its that " oh well your over 40, so lets whip it out". We definitely need more research in the treatment of fibroids. They affect so many women.
1593.  L.H Stroud I had 13 fibroids removed 8 years ago - I was 35. One had strangled an ovary and my fertility due to this and scarring was compromised. I have not been able to have children. I am now facing more surgery as they are back - research and support is much needed
1592.  C.C Barnsley I am 40yrs and have been suffering with fibroids.Last year in June 2013 l had uterine fibroids embolization.I went for my review after 6months but there was no change.l had a referral by my gynecologist to a specialist for further investigations and l am on a tablet esmya for 3mths.Due for fibroids removal in June
1591.  L TURRIFF
1590.  Y.D Stockport I started my periods 33 years ago and have not stopped suffering since. Extremely heavy, couldn\\\'t leave the house as I bled so heavily and in so much pain. I took Feminax at the time which would knock me out and take some of the pain away. When my children were in nappies, I would wear one during the night as my bleeding was so heavy with huge liver sized clots coming out. I was diagnosed eventually with fibroids about 8-10 years ago and I was sent to see a \\\'specialist\\\' at the hospital. The \\\'man\\\' told me I shouldn\\\'t be having pain with fibroids and dismissed me. I went home in tears and have suffered since. I have just changed doctors and seen a lovely doctor who referred me for a scan, I am basically riddled with fibroids. I am now waiting for treatment but at last something is being done. I kept having time off work as I was in absolute agony, couldn\\\'t walk and had to use the loo every 15 minutes to change and that\\\'s with a huge night time towel plus largest tampon together. More care is needed for women.
