Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1405.  S.C Ruislip I have just been told i need to my fibroid removed. Its 26 weeks in size. I has never bothered me but ive been told of implications. im 43 and fearing there could be complications.Ive read about different methods in US. Doesnt seem to apply here.
1404.  C.N Chorley I have been diagnosed with a 9cm fibroid. Unbeknown to me, I now realise it could have caused the 6 miscarriages I have suffered over the years. Because not a lot was known about the link, and no further investigations were carried out, I lost several babies. Looking back now, if more had been known about the links between fibroids and miscarriages, I need not have suffered so much losing all my babies. Also, after trying to donate blood in August 2012, it was discovered that I had this fibroid. It made me so Anaemic I was unable to climb more than 4 stairs without getting breathless. I felt like I was 90 years old - I was 45 years old. It affected my whole life and continues to do so.
1403.  B Shaftesbury I have had fibroids for years but only in the last year have I realised that it could be what has caused my increasing back pain, urinary leaks, depression, lack of motivation and energy, dizziness and bowel problems. After gently persuading my GP (who did seem a little naive - which I put down to age and experience) that I needed to see a specialist I am now having a hysterectomy and I am extremely pleased. The specialist was wonderful, considered my situation & options very carefully and we came to the same agreement very swiftly. I can say that I feel very well care for under the NHS and I know that I am in good hands and feel positive about the future. I believe that study into any part of how our bodies work and why they do what they do is essential and I would be happy to have explored an alternative, but knowing my situation I am pleased to be in the hands of a very good surgeon.
1402.  S.C Amesbury I recently needed a blood transfusion due to heavy bleeding as a result of fibroids. I have suffered for years but have only recently been told about fibroids following an ultrasound. I am now waiting for a hysterectomy to put an end to the misery caused by fibroids. More research is needed to ensure future generations are not put through unnecessary pain and anguish caused by fibroids.
1401.  N.C Stockton-on-Tees
1400.  A.D Peterborough I went to A&E in agony 3 weeks ago with abdominal pain, they did an internal and thought they felt an enlarged uterous. They ask gyny to come and do ultrasound but nobody came so the decided to take out appendix instead just in case this was the cause. Since found out i have a fibroid 5.3cm - i'm still of work still in alot of pain and still haven't seen a gynaecologist got to wait another 4 weeks yet. All the doctor keeps saying is the pain is post op and you can not get pain from fibroids!

1395.  R.H Manchester Back in 2001 I almost died due to a massive Fibroid, I have had a number of myomectomies and was also diagnosed with a sever form of Endometriosis. I find it appalling that we are no further along in the treatment of Fibroids in 2013. Initial diagnosis takes too long. The automatic advice for a hysterectomy is no real choice in my opinion.This hasn\\\'t changed from when an aunt had exactly that happen to remedy her issues with fibroids in the 80\\\'s. Now a sister has also been diagnosed. Please front up the research, better early detection and non-invasive interventions and treatments.

1392.  B.I Portsmouth I have been recently diagnosed with fibroids and also recently told by my GP that because I am 50 (and ASSUMED to be near menopause) I will be offered no treatment for them as it will 'spoil their figures'(I assume this means the local NHS trust). More research means more effective and less invasive treatments and perhaps even prevention so hopefully women like me wont just be expected to live, work and cope with the condition without treatment at all
1391.  J.L Henfield
1390.  V.B Preston Sick of doctors not listening,my problem been going on for years...! I can deal with the bleeding its the pain and all the symptoms that go with fibroids....so ended up with mirena..didn't want it,got rid of it want something else now....!
