Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1488.  A.B Widnes For the past 4 mths i have been having very heavy bleeding. Loosing clots. I visited my doctor as with having the marina coil this was very unusual as i dont have periods. My doctorrefered me for a scan which resulted in them telling me i have fibroids. I asked the radioologist is there anything i can do. She replied you could get the marina coil this somtimes helps!! She failed to recognize during my ultrasound that i have a marina already and have done for nearly 10 yrs.already i am feeling very anxious as to how i can put up with this heamoriging every 3 weeks.
1487.  C.C Alvaston, Derby Given the prevalence of fibroids in women, it is my belief that more should be done to raise awareness amongst women, better educate medical professionals (especially in the public sector) with regard to the full range of treatments, and carry out more research towards early detection and non-invasive treatments.
1486.  F Wimborne, Dorset I had a myomectomy exactly a year ago today. Had four blood transfusions, lots of complications from the moment I woke up until a few days after, one thing after another, although I was very fit and healthy. The team were wonderful, all the surgeons and the medical teams were really great. It is not just the physical trauma to your body, but mentally too. They first found mine in 2003 and they were already 3-4 cms, waited along time for the right gynae to come along to actually do something, he was marvellous. The big one they took out was a size of a grapefruit, other smaller. Also wanted children, but I think too late now. You don't just get them in your uterus. What I found amazing is how many women have never heard of them and when they do it is usually the cause of their symptoms. More research is definitely needed.
1485.  M.P Peterborough
1484.  L.C London More research, awareness and resources need to be on offer!
1483.  K.M Colne
1482.  R.F Croydon I have had a failed ivf and took meds with warning about fibroids and now have one at 5cm and the discomforts are growing strong, desperately seeking a solution. P.S great website and nice to have this to turn to and give me some guidance - thank you.
1481.  D.B Romford I support the need for further research for the prevention of fibroids, early intervention natural(herbal) treatments
1480.  J.B CHELTENHAM
1479.  S.Q Audenshaw
1478.  M.R Mawdesley We need research ...more help could stop hospital stays for hysterectomy s if other. Treatments available.
1477.  S.L Leeds
1476.  I.D Ipswich
1475.  N.S Bromley
1474.  S.M Isle of Skye
1473.  J.R Glasgow More education and training should be available to doctors on the subject of fibroids, and awareness needs to be raised of the misery, discomfort and inconvenience caused by fibroids.
1472.  S London
1471.  N.C Canterbury I fully support the call for further research into all aspects of Fibroids and their effects on womens daily lives, and those who depend upon them. One is left wondering if this affected testicles, would this be left 'hanging' for so long? Fibroids should be everyones concern - much like the breast cancer campaign has become.
1470.  M.D Watford I have been diagnosed with fibroids three times in as many years but have not been told whether they can be removed, just that they will be \\\'kept an eye on\\\'. Not very helpful
1469.  G.R Liverpool
